The Seaton week was started with a friendly meeting with Charmouth that produced success on all three rinks, writes Maria Johnson.
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.
There was also a meeting with Belmont, but this one was lost 39-16.
There was a terrific win at Crediton Yellow where the Seaton team won 47-27 with success on both with the top rink being the one of M Vessey, L Stone and D Morley.
A friendly with Seaton ended in an 80-66 defeat. Here the top performing Seaton rink was the one of H Sillier, E Talbot, L Hurley-Smith and R Pluck.
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!
Seaton won on all three triples’ rinks to secure a 63-40 success. The top rink was the one of E Keller, A Joyner and H Smith.
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.
