They defeated Terry and Joan Harvey of Bitton Park at Bitton Park by 23-17, in the quarter finals.

Likewise, congratulations are due to the Feniton team of L Eveleigh, J Edwards and C Granger who defeated S Mott, M Dowrick and C King by 20-10 to win the section three final of the Ladies’ Benevolent Triples competition.

Feniton Ladies defeated Sidmouth Ladies by 43-27. The winning rinks were: J Skinner, G Smith, A Coyne and L Dommett 26-11; N Cox, G North and J O’ Sullivan 17-16. Unfortunately, they lost their last East Devon league match to Crediton 31-43, thereby only gaining two points instead of the four that they needed to secure the league title. The winning rink was J Smith, A Pritchard J Evans and R Veitch 19-18.

The over-60s’ men’s team lost their top of the table clash with Tiverton, losing narrowly on both rinks, by 29-32. In their two clashes with Tiverton this season, they have only lost by four shots, but have only gained one point.
