Last Wednesday the ladies played another round in the Lane Trophy with Exonia providing the opposition. The Exeter side proved to strong in the home and away leg contest and claimed a 72-49 triumph, winning on all but one of the four rinks.

The South Devon emerged victorious to the tune of a 97-81 score line and won o three of the four rinks.

The winning Sidmouth rink was that of Maurice Watson, David Fairclough, John Mason and skip Bob Seldon who won 27-19 at home.

On Thursday three rinks of ladies’ travelled to Axminster fro a friendly encounter and enjoyed success on two of the rinks and overall by 65 shots to 40.

The best performing rink was that of Pat Ashton-Pritchard, Susie Bonnell, Jenny Fricker and skip Elaine Reed, the latter warranting special praise as this was her maiden match as the skip!

The top Sidmouth rink was that of Wilf Radburn, Chris Radburn, Sylvia Cook and skip Ron Cook who won by 30 shots to 21.

Well done, to the winning rink of Lorna Lever, Christa Turner, Ann Capon and skip Jill Bishop who landed a 34-6 success.
