Seaton Bowls Club: On Friday, Seaton ladies were due to play against Lyme Regis at home but Lyme were unable to get a team so the match had to be cancelled.

Fortunately, the Seaton Men sent six rinks to Lyme Regis. In beautiful sunshine Seaton men lost by five shots, 70-75. Two Seaton teams finished on the same score, winning by 10 shots. They were Malcolm Carvell, John Packham, Laurie Skipper and skip Philip Crichard 21-11 and Alan Green, Geoff Fullerlove, Roy Carnan and skip Roy Carnell.

On Thursday evening, in the Over-60s Triple League, Seaton sent two triple teams to Budleigh Salterton where the final result was a win for Seaton 48-29.

The two teams for Seaton were: Jeremy Allison, George Mabon and skip Roger Woolland 30-10; Alan Cox, John Wright and Alan Wood who lost by one shot 18-19. Well done gentlemen.

Wednesday brought another day of very heavy rain and the Over-60s Triple League against Phear Park had to be postponed and the match will be rearranged.

The internal club competitions are heading towards the finals. Please make a note in your diaries and come and support the finals weekend on August 23/ 24. Food will be available together with tea and coffee, and for those who would prefer something a little stronger, the bar will also be open. Everyone is welcome, members and visitors, and we look forward to seeing you.

Tuesday saw the Perham Trophy which is the equivalent to the Perham Cup.

Six teams of four ladies were invited from Budleigh Salterton, Chardstock, Feniton, Honiton, Lyme Regis and Sidmouth. This is a Round Robin played over 24 ends. The winners of the Trophy with a magnificent +34 points was Lyme Regis, many congratulations to them. The runners up were Sidmouth.

The prizes were presented by Seaton's ladies' Captain Sue Rutter. Once again it is thanks to the Perham brothers, who continue to support this event, which makes it such a successful afternoon and enjoyed by everyone - even though half way through the ladies had to take shelter during a hail storm.

Seaton men went to Sidmouth on Tuesday afternoon where four teams played.

It was a great success for Sidmouth who won on all four rinks 68-43. Seaton's best losing team was David Yardley, Alan Green, John Wright and skip Roy Carnell 15-19.

On Monday Seaton travelled to Crewkerne, where all five mixed rinks won. The final result was Seaton 105-85. Seaton's top rink was Jeremy Allison, Gwynydd Brazendale, Michael Follenfant and skip Barbara Harden 27-18. At home Roger Woolland played in the Section final for the Over-60s County singles. His opponent was Bill Davis from Madeira, and Seaton would like to congratulate Roger on a magnificent win yet again 21-11. He now goes forward to play at Plymouth against all the other section finalists throughout Devon. The date is to be arranged, but, Seaton wish Roger every success and to continue the high standard of bowling he has achieved this year.

On Saturday, the rain came and never stopped all day, so it was disappointing that the match against Chard had to be cancelled.

But, fortunately on Sunday the forecast was showers and the game against Ottery St Mary went ahead, which was six mixed triple teams. Fortunately the rain did not come until the last end. Ottery St Mary put up a great performance, and won 112-92. Seaton's best team was Ron Sherwood, Betty Powell and skip Barbara Harden, winning 23-12.
