There was more success last week for Seaton C in their Exeter and District Over-60s League campaign, writes Glen Elliott.

The team won a 10th successive match and banked another 'maximum' haul of eight points with victory over visiting Broadclyst.

The top rink was the one of Glen Elliott, 'Dynamic' Dennis Ridd and Adrian Deakin racked up a massive 41-9 score line while the rink of Peter, Malcolm and Ken came back from 12-3 down to win 18-13, thus preserving the teams proud season-long record of not losing any rinks.

The C team remain top of their table and there was a fine 40-31 home win for Seaton A in their meeting with Ottery St Mary.

The rink honours went to Roger Wolland, Ron Rowley and Les Tooze. Unfortunately, the 'B' team lost their tough away game at Madeira.
