Honiton bowlers play part in Devon’s march into last eight of the Atherley Trophy
Honiton bowlers continue to enjoy some fine form, writes Ann Brown.
There was a clean sweep in friendly matches with four wins out of four!
Chardstock were beaten 92-57, Phear Park were toppled 81-64, Taunton Deane suffered a heavy 123-45 defeat and there was an equally impressive 111-46 win over Feniton.
Top rink players in the four matches included; Bob Mackintosh, Harry Riley, Barry Randall, Paul Gadd, Tony Williams, Gerry Stafrace, Bill Nicholls, Ian McKenzie, Yvonne Williams, Paul Clarke, Brenda Harris, Jimmy Smith, B. Collins and Scott Eveleigh. Well done, to all of them.
