They were in action at Southampton’s Banister Park on Saturday for a quarter final match against Kent in the Liberty trophy.

Unfortunately Devon lost by 10 shots with three rinks winning and three losing. The match was mighty close, particularly when it arrived at the ten ends stage with the scores 52-all. It stayed that way and, with a couple of ends remaining was 98-all, but Kent then took charge to seal a 126-116 success.

Somerset also lost their quarter final to Sussex, but a bit more seriously! They won just a single rink out of the six - so no representatives from the West Country in the semi-finals this season!

The Co-operative Funeralcare International Open 2014 started last weekend at Blackpool Newton Hall Indoor Bowls Club and the latter stages will be shown on Sky Sports 3 and 4. All the top stars from around the world will be playing including Devon’s Danny Denison and Robert Paxton.
