Seaton Blue ladies were involved in a thrilling win when they met Crediton Green, writes Glen Elliott

Skip Di Morley delivered a magnificent draw shot with the last wood of the match to clinch a very tight game.

Di, ably supported by the 'effervescent' Carol and Lillian Hurley-Smith stay top of Division One after this latest success.

In the men's Over-60s Triples League, Seaton A were beaten by just two shots away at Crediton where the rink scores were tied. The Seaton winning rink was the one of Andy Ross, Alan Wood and Don Yaxley.

The C team continue to dominate their division after banking another eight points in a home win over Sidmouth D.

Two captains inspired friendly team success over the past week. In what was a good-spirited meeting with visiting Bradninch, all four rinks ended in home success with Heather Hudson, Matt Tyne and club captain Linda Stone, proving just too powerful in their match on what was a very blustery afternoon.

In the other friendly, also at home, saw the four rinks with visitors Severalls shared. In what was another friendly, and light-hearted match, Seaton emerged 89-67 winners with the top rink honours going to Maria Johnson, Paul Hobbs, Malcolm Carvell and, once again, club captain Linda Stone. During the interval of the match against Severalls, some marvellous clotted cream scones and strawberries were served much to the delight of all.
