There was some further county competition successes for Seaton bowlers over the past week, writes Glen Elliott.
Lillian Hurley-Smith partnered by Liz Wilde battled through three hard games in two days to win section three and progress into the quarter-finals of the County Major Pairs.
In addition, Di Morley and partner Pat Whitworth have deservedly won through to the last 16 of the same competition.
Continuing the good news at county level, Peter Baradell won section three of the men's two-wood competition, reaching another county final, having already qualified for the men's pairs finals.
There was sadly, no success in the ladies Over-50s Triples League with the Blue team losing on the last end away to Crediton Green, and consequently the match by the smallest of margins, going down 37-36 shots.

The men's triples A team also met a Crediton side in their latest outing and they shared the rink scores with visitors, but lost overall by eight shots, 38-30 though there was a winning rink; that being the one of A Wood, K Shean, L Tooze.
On a brighter note it was encouraging to see new club members Kathleen and Gordon Manley, both being on the top rinks in their respective matches this week firstly Kathleen playing in a rain-reduced friendly away at Wellington, where, along with C Anton, D Ridd, and L Allison, helped Seaton to a narrow two shot victory. Then, husband , along with K Taylor and G Elliott, were the top rink in the men's triples C team, who maintained their unbeaten start to the season with their seventh straight win. Playing away against third-placed Sidmouth D, Seaton won a good-humoured and banter-ridden match by 50 shots to 23.
