First Fours at Sidford
Sidford Short Mat Bowling Club held its first 'Fours' Tournament competition in Sidford Social Hall.
Eight teams from across East Devon took part and teams from Newton Poppleford and Woodbury enjoyed good results in the group stages against 'more fancied' opposition. Woodbury emerged from the Group stage unbeaten and went on to contest the final against Colyton. The final was played in a good sporting atmosphere but Colyton proved to be too strong and each of their players made good contributions to their victory.
Pictured are the finalists: Woodbury at the back (from left: Arthur and Janet Cuff, Bev Williams and Alan Shere). Colyton, at the front (Peter Morgan, Brian Bliss-Hill, Don Hansford and Peter Barnes).
The club is grateful to the local businesses who provided raffle prizes: Brophys and the Clock Tower Restaurants; East Hill Pride Farm Shop; Fields of Sidmouth; Otter Inn Carvery; Sidmouth Market; The Salty Monk and Upper Crust Hairdressers.
