The top Seaton rink was the one of J Derbyshire, L Hurley-Smith, B Scull and P Griggs.

Tuesday saw a visit to Culm Vale in the TCL, but it produced little joy as Seaton went down 84-67 with the top performing rink the one of L Hurley-Smith, T Hurley-Smith, R Rowley and R Woodland.

Wednesday was a busy day with two matches played. The men’s Over-60s team took all eight points from the meeting with Heavitree. With wins on both rinks, the best one was the rink skipped by L Tooze who was accompanied by P Newton and R Rowley.

The ladies’ Over-50s Triples League team entertained Starcross and the visitors were beaten 49-16. This produced a much needed victory for the team!

A visit to Chardstock saw the bowlers play in a delightful setting overlooking the cricket pitch. The weather was superb and the play matched the conditions!

The week concluded with a seven-rink match against a touring side from Purnells. A wonderful fun afternoon was had by all and the final score was 138-135 in Seaton’s favour. The top home rink was; N Stone, Dave Goodwin (borrowed from the opposition), M Marvell and L Stone.
