Ottery bowlers enjoyed more success last week, writes Michael Smith.

After recently landing the Honiton Howard Cottrell Trophy, a team of four, Brian Salter, Eric Richardson, Richard Bland and skip Terry House travelled to Sidmouth to compete in the Jubilee Trophy and came away with the cup, scoring a magnificent plus 29 shot difference.

The ladies were not to be outdone when Dot Luff and skip Gail Hawke reached the county section final in the ladies pairs, they were up against a Budleigh duo and had a terrific 19-17 win, this means that Gail now only needs a couple of points to gain her County Badge - well done to everyone.

In the Exeter and District Over-60s Triples League, the Ottery A team had a narrow single shot success over top-of-the-table Belmont A. The final score was 35-34 and there was a fine 17-12 victory in the match for the trio of skip Terry House, Tony Luff and John Ward.

There were mixed fortunes for the Ottery B team who suffered a rare loss when beaten at Tiverton West End D where they banked just the one point. However, they bounced back the following day to bank a maximum eight point haul from a fine home win over Madeira D.
