Seaton bowlers were beaten when they visited Broadclyst for a triples match, writes Maria Johnson.

It turned out to be a very strange green, and the fact that Seaton managed to be all square on two of the rinks played was quite a feat in itself!

There was a Monday morning trip to Topsham for the ladies Over-5Os Blue team. The team managed to win on one rink thanks to the fine play of L Hurley-Smith, A Mayhew and J Miles.

The same day Seaton were in afternoon action at Madeira where the Exmouth club won 66-53. The top Seaton rink was the one of I Manchester, A Nicholas, R Pluck and P Grigg.

A home meeting with Tiverton West End was lost 100-69 with the top Seaton rink being the one of G Sykes, C Brown, B Scull and L Stone.

On the same day the ladies Over-50s Triples League Red team were convincing 45-26 winners on their visit to Budleigh.

On an overcast Thursday afternoon Bridport pitched up for a match that saw the home team win handsomely at 88-44.

Saturday served up a wonderful sunny day for the club members to compete in the drawn pairs with the Ray Jeffrey (men’s) and the Iris Amyes (ladies) internal competitions. It all finished in the afternoon with four pairs from each competition playing the semi-finals.

The club’s catering committee and all helpers have done a sterling job on three successive Saturday’s providing lunches.
