A Wednesday away game for the Over-60s Triples League A team followed, but this also did not go Seaton’s way as both triples were lost, with the total shots score being 46 to Topsham and just 30 for Seaton.

Meanwhile, the B team followed their previous week’s away win of 39 shots to 31 over Sidmouth B, by landing another six point win, this time against Honiton B, with 44 shots to 26. The top rink being, Mike Clarke, John Vieth and Richard Whitworth, scoring 28 shots to eight.

On Thursday evening a Top Club match took place, at home against Madeira, over five disciplines.

Seaton won the rink and the triple, but lost the pairs and the two and four wood singles. Thus the visitors took the match overall by three disciplines to two. Also on Thursday, the ladies played in the County two-wood triples, when the one triple of, Angie Mayhew, Barbara Sluman and Sue Dando, progressed to the section final, but succumbed to a Sidmouth team.

A final thrust on the 24th end saw Terry take the match by 21-19.
