Seaton entertained touring side Cogenhoe from Northampton and had the green all set up for a seven rink contest, writes Alan Nicholas.

This proved to be quite a tight and entertaining match, with the home team just taking the result by four rinks to three and with a total shots score of 122-112.

The top rink for Seaton was the one of Mat Tyne, Debra White, Bob Scull and Pat Whitworth.

At the half-way point, Seaton’s club catering team provided a most welcoming Devonshire cream tea, with scones baked in the club kitchen earlier that day.

Saturday saw 46 members of our club playing a rinks tournament, which included many of our new members.

Each team played three games over eight ends, with lunch provided, again by our club catering team, between the second and third games.

This proved to be a day of excellent atmosphere and the novices played really well and made many new friends.

Two of the teams won all three of their games, which required the result to be settled on shot difference.

This was the team of Lisa Tyne, Ian Manchester, Ken Taylor and Phil Crichard. The day raised a sum of £245, which will be used towards club refurbishment and maintenance.

Finally, on Sunday, the annual Perham Shield was played for, between six teams from Seaton against teams from other local clubs.

On this occasion the result went to Seaton, who took first and second places.

The winning Seaton team comprised Ruby Grigg, Bob Scull, Lilian Hurley-Smith and Richard Whitworth with plus 16, and the runners-up, with plus 12, were Liz Wilde, Graham Thomas, Don Yaxley and Di Morley.
