It was a time for jubilation for The Falcons who won not only the Sidmouth League Cup but also the Sidmouth League.

On the evening of Friday, March 29, I went along to watch the cup final.

I am not sure how long ago the league started exactly, but what I do remember is my late husband talked Terry Lee into becoming a sponsor.

Mr Lee was then managing director of Porbury's and also an avid Sidmouth bowler.

He did a great job of being our club fixtures secretary for many years.

The woods I still use some 30 years later, I bought second hand from Terry Lee.

Sadly he passed away but when I last saw him in Sidmouth Hospital, he said: "I'm pleased to see my woods are doing well ".

His son, Michael Lee, then kept the sponsorship going and after his very sad loss, I understand his grandson Paddy has now taken over.

We very much appreciate and sincerely thank them all for keeping this sponsorship going.

The league, in its very early days, had some 11 teams from clubs from all East Devon and West Dorset and was played on two evenings each week throughout the winter season.

Unfortunately, several clubs have dropped out over the years, so we are now only six teams played on one day each week.

Sidmouth Herald: It was a time for jubilation for The Falcons

The league cup final was between the same two teams that fought for the league title, The Cowboys from Madeira B.C and The Falcons mainly from Honiton.

It was a very good evening as you would expect, a very close game with some excellent bowling and plenty of noise and lots of drink - Sue was really busy on the bar.

Going into the final 18th end, The Falcons were two shots down at 20 to 22 to the Cowboys.

Not to be deterred, they managed a great four shots to win 24-22.

So well done to Roy Lovering, Steve Dommett, Kevin Lovering and skip Scott Eveleigh .

The Cowboy runners up were Ken Robertson, Andrew Lock, Graham Clarkson and skip Mark Perrott.

The Falcons also won the Sidmouth League , with The Cowboys runners-up and Sidmouth Centurions in third place.

To finish , young Scott Eveleigh has reached the final 16 players in the whole of England.

So by the time you read this, he would have played the men's singles at Nottingham, lets hope he did well.
