The past week was not the best in terms of success for Ottery St Mary bowlers, writes Michael Smith.

In the LOFTL competition, Ottery ladies lost a close encounter at Pinces Garden, going down by just two shots at 34-32.

The one success for the Otters was an 18-14 victory for the rink of Terri Ward, Fenella Giggs and skip Gail Hawke.

It was not a good week for the three men’s teams playing in the Exeter and District Over-60s League as all three went down, this despite each one of then teams sharing the rink scores!

The A team went down away at Sidmouth A, the B side lost at Bradninch A and the C team went down on their visit to Sidmouth D.

The top Ottery rink was the one of Gill White, Steve Goodenough and skip Terry House, who won 23-11.
