The Seaton bowlers week began with a friendly match against Barnstaple that was won 110-89, writes Maria Johnson.

Barum pitched up in East Devon a rink short so the home captain handed a rink over to the visitors and that, ironically, proved to be the only visiting success!

The best of the Seaton rinks was the one of S Warrick, M Swallow and R Rowley.

In the Over-60s Tripes League Seaton C were 47-32 winners over Ottery St Mary with the top rink being the one of D Ridd, G Thomas and P Grigg.

The A team made the long journey to Morchard Bishop where they sealed a 40-25 success to banks a full-house of eight points.

The top rink was the one of P Newton, R Rowley and L Tooze.

In the Ladies Over-50s League Seaton Blue were 38-30 winners over Shaldon and that means they stay second in the division.

In this match the top rink was the one of L Hurley-Smith, S Rutter and A Mayhew.

Seaton Red were also in good form as they secured a 48-22 success against Starcross, a victory that takes them up to sixth place in Division Two.

The Seaton ladies had an Interclub match at Hemyock where, for the first time, Seaton were contesting a semi-final in the competition for the first time. There was little sign of their ‘big match’ inexperience as, playing against a younger and more experienced Newton Abbot side, they ended convincing winners!

After a slow start which saw the opposition open a lead, the Seaton ladies chipped away at the advantage before securing success and booking a place in the post-lunch final against the 2014 competition runners-up Tiverton West End.

This proved to be an enthralling contest, one won by a margin of just two points by the Mid Devon side. Well done, ladies, to be runners-up is the least you deserve and it’s testament to your fine efforts this season.
