The Ottery St Mary week started with a visit from St Thomas, writes Michael Smith.

This was a contest that saw the Ottery bowlers in fine form and they ran out comfortable 63-33 winners, taking the honours on all four rinks. Moyra Griffin, Dave Rose and skip Shirley Fewtrell were the pick of the rinks with a 22-9 success.

In the final match of the season Ottery welcomed their good friends from Honiton. As usual local rivalry was evident, this time Ottery finished the season with a fine 98-73 victory and by three rinks to two.

The best Ottery rink was Melvin Trayhearn, Margaret Hunt, Sharon Kenny and skip Shirley Fewtrell with a 28-15 success.

Also during the week, Ottery hosted the Bowls Devon (BD) Over-60s Round Robin, this is where representatives from various Exeter and District Men’s Over-60s League come together at the end of the season for a friendly tournament and the Division Trophies are presented at the end of the event.

The green is now closed and we look forward to the start of the indoor season, although not having indoor rinks ourselves, local clubs who have indoor facilities kindly invite Ottery to play throughout the indoor season.
