The latest Seaton Bowls Club week began with a Monday, four rink friendly away at Taunton Bowling Club, on their Vivary Park green, writes Alan Nicholas.

The rinks were shared, but Seaton took the match 76 shots to 68 with the top rink the one of Barbara Sluman, Graham Thomas, Marian Vessey and Richard Whitworth.

Tuesday saw another friendly, again over four rinks, but this time at home to Sidmouth.

This match also went to Seaton by three rinks to one, but the total shot score ended as 62-all, underlining just what a close contest it was.

The top Seaton rink was the one of Mike Clarke, John Haywood, Lin Allison and Linda Stone (who was sadly unwell at the halfway point and had to retire, being replaced by Peter Grigg).

Thursday brought a further home friendly match of four rinks, this time against Lyme Regis, which resulted in another 3-1 rink success and an overall shot score of 76 to Seaton and 48 to the visitors.

The top Seaton rink was the one of Liz Wilde, Lin Vieth, Esdre Keller and Don Yaxley, who recorded the very good score of 21-6.

Finally, on Saturday, the club celebrated Captain’s Day with an afternoon of social bowling, with five rinks and two triples games bringing over 50 members onto the green.

Club captain Roger Woolland hosted the event, ensuring everybody had an enjoyable afternoon and also, following the bowling, were ‘fed and watered!’ in the clubhouse.

Roger thanked all members for their efforts throughout his year and presented a number of awards to those he felt had, ‘gone the extra mile’ both for the club and their fellow members’.

We now enter our final week of the outside bowling season for this year.
