The Honiton men’s and ladies’ indoor external leagues have come to a conclusion, writes Julie Grant.

In the men’s fours league, a team named the Falcons, which combines Feniton and Honiton players, won and the Hornets of Honiton came second.

In the ladies’ triples league a team of Sidmouth past and present members called the Blinis won and the Lacemakers of Honiton came second.

Sadly, there is no recent success to report in friendlies. Honiton drew with Pinces Gardens 72-all with the top rink being the one of Ian McKenzie, Bob Mackintosh, John Munslow and Ted Cox, scoring 25-17. The men lost to Madeira 52 -60 with all three rinks going down to defeat.

However, success did come for Devon ladies in the national Atherley Trophy semi-final when they defeated Surrey by one shot to set up a final with Norfolk.
