The Ottery St Mary week began with a fine success over close rivals Feniton in the County Trophy, writes Michael Smith.

The Otters won two rinks to Feniton’s one with one also drawn leaving the Otters as overall 84-75 winners. Much of the success was down to a superb 30-10 success for Terry House (skip), John Mabbott, Chris Hawke and John Pethick.

The Ottery men were in action in the Over-60s League. The A team were narrowly beaten 35-31 by Tiverton West End A and the B team also went down by a small margin, beaten by just three shots, 32-29 in their game at Tiverton West End C where they did win on one of the rinks – that a 20-10 success for John Mabbott, George Kille and skip Brian Baker.

Also in Over-60s action were the C team, but they found Seaton C far too strong, going down heavily on both rinks.

Meanwhile, Ottery ladies had a good victory at home to St Thomas in the LNBTL, winning 36-31. In this match their was an impressive 26-12 victory for Carol Keating, Val Kille and skip Margaret Bright.
