Ottery bowlers netted their fourth trophy of the season when a trio returned from a trip to Mid Devon with the Uffculme Triples trophy, writes Michael Smith.

There were 24 teams in the competition and, after a run of unbeaten games, Terri and John Ward together with skip Terry House, were acclaimed winners.

Congratulation, to them!

Elsewhere, Ottery ladies were successful with a win on both rinks at Feniton in the LOFTL, with Terri Ward, Joan Saunders and skip Mollie Parker securing a 17-13 victory. Then the next they had another good win at Exonia in the LNBTL, again winning on both rinks – each won 15-10.

In the Exeter and District Over-60s Triples League Ottery A were beaten at home on both rinks by opponents Hemyock.

However, the B team had a very good win at Chardstock from where they returned with maximum points.

John Mabbott, George Kille and skip Brian Baker enjoyed a superb 23-8 success. The win means the B team march on in top spot in Division Seven and are very much in the hunt for promotion. The C team went down on both rinks to Belmont C.

A couple of friendly matches were played. The meeting with Lyme Regis saw Ottery beaten three-one in terms of rink scores and that was also the final outcome of a meeting with Bovey Tracey in a rain shortened match.

Ottery also played host to two representative matches. The Exeter and District Over 60s met Bowls Devon Presidents before, two days later, Bowls Devon Patrons toom on Section Three.

Both matches were played in fine spirits on two glorious days, Sharon Kenny and the catering team provided sumptuous afternoon teas to keep every body very happy.
