It was another busy past week for all concerned at Seaton Bowls Club, writes Linda Stone.

It all got underway with Monday’s meeting with visitors Honiton who inflicted a narrow defeat.

On Wednesday the ladies played the next round of the Grace Matthew’s Cup against a very strong Madeira team away.

They lost 4-1 with the lone success being when junior vice captain Maria Johnson beat Angie Fish in the 4-wood singles. On the other four rinks Seaton played well, but were out bowled eventually by an opposition team that included no fewer then 11 County players, five John’s players and two former internationals!

Following two impressive away victories in which maximum points were obtained, Seaton A moved to the top of Division Three of the Exeter and District Over 60’s Triples League!

On Wednesday Seaton travelled to Dawlish and beat Marina B by 28 shots (42-14) with both rinks winning by the same margin of 14 shots.

On Friday, in a rearranged fixture, Seaton played Culm Vale C and won by 12 shots (39-27). The top triple was Peter Newton, Ron Rowley and Les Tooze who won by seven shots. The Over 60’s B team played on a very dry green at Crediton, losing the match, but gaining two points with a win on one rink by Norman Stone, Terry Hurley-Smith and skip Don Yaxley. The Seaton C team played a home game against Pinces Gardens unfortunately losing both triples 13-16 and 18-22.

Wednesday evening saw the next round of the men’s county fours competition. Norman Stone, Roger Woolland, Don Yaxley and Les Tooze, having all played in the Over-60s Triples League that afternoon, travelled to Feniton where they played a team from Honiton, winning by seven shots to claim their place in the final 16 in Devon. They will now play at Torquay on July 12.

On Thursday Seaton travelled to Budleigh Salterton and just lost a friendly encounter by seven shots.

The top rink was Sheila Pike, Brian Pike, Peter Greenwood and skip Pat Whitworth. Thursday also saw the Seaton men win their next round match in the Foxlands by 14 shots; winning away and losing at home.

The winning rink was Roy Carnell, Terry Hurley-Smith, Les Tooze and Phil Critchard.

On Saturday the club held a Midsummer Madness Charity Day to raise money for the Seaton Home Nursing Service.

Fourty players turned out in colourful attire to enjoy the match. We welcomed our new members to their first taste of competitive bowls and they really impressed by their play.

All the rink fees and money from a mega raffle raised nearly £150.00. Everyone had fun and the winning rink was David Ford (the birthday boy!), Bill Lauder (novice), Linda Stone and skip Maria Johnson who were presented with the trophy by Angie Mayhew - president.
