Sidmouth Indoor bowls contested a brace of mixed matches and both produced victories.

Four rinks travelled to Isca and won by nine shots with the best winning rink being Marian Watson, Harold Casson, Beryl Sparkes and skip Maurice Watson.

A home match with Dunkeswell was won 60- 47 with Pat Hague, Wilf Radburn, Ron Denning and skip Dreda Taylor producing the best shot difference.

The ladies played a triples game against Budleigh Salterton on two rinks and won 38-20.

The team with the best shot difference was Lorna Lever, Mary Price and skip Dreda Taylor.

The Lane team had a wonderful win when they beat Madeira 89-45. All four teams (two at home and two away) won their matches.

The most successful was Margot Beauchamp, Sheila Ingyon, Jenny Fricker and skip Jane Painter winning 23-9. Well done to all the ladies involved.

Unfortunately the ladies were less successful when they played a very strong team from Torquay United in the Yetton Trophy Plate, a national competition, losing on three of the four rinks.

The only winning rink was Marian Watson, Sue Mison, Dreda Taylor and skip Jill Bishop.

In a men’s national competition- Top Club, which is played with five disciplines, Sidmouth had a close match against Budleigh.

Ivan Robins had a narrow win in the 2-wood singles and Tony Brown and John Mason combined to win the pairs but Budleigh were successful in the 4-wood singles and the full rink.

The last game to be completed was the triples which Budleigh won on the last end thus winning by three disciplines to two.
