Ottery played host to the Wales and South Monmouth Ladies touring party, writes Michael Smith.
Ottery made up four rinks and there were a further three ‘home’ rinks made up of players from neighbouring clubs.
However, the Welsh ladies’ proved too strong and came out winners by five rinks to two.
In their final match of the Exeter and District Over-60s Triples League, the Ottery men’s B side entertained Madeira C in classic winner-takes-all match to determine which of the pair ended as Division Seven champions!
It was the Ottery team that emerged victorious to the tune of a 40-20 score line thanks to wins on both rinks. There was a terrific 28-9 success for Richard Chapple, John Mabbott and skip Brian Baker while the rink of Tony Bushell, Norman Lawrence and skip Ray Luscombe held their nerve to win 12-11. Congratulations, to the entire squad on a marvellous season.
