The Seaton bowling week began with an East of Exe Mixed League match, at home to Feniton, writes Alan Nicholas.

Seaton won on three rinks and drew on one – that a rink where they made up three shots on the last end, and it all helped towards an overall 70-52 score.

The top Seaton rink was the one of Ruby Grigg, Kevin McCarthy, Peter Barradell and Roger Woolland, 23-9.

Tuesday took the ladies’ Over-50s Red team to Shaldon where they found one of the home triples to be in terrific form, dishing out a 32-5 rink defeat!

Thankfully, Seaton’s other triple of Liz Wilde, Chris Barradell and Sue Dando won their match 23-13, which left the final score one of 45-28 to the home side.
