On the last weekend of the summer season Ottery travelled to Tiverton Boro’ for their final fixture, writes Michael Smith.

In a close contest Ottery lost by six shots, 62-56, although Jan Richardson, Gerry Beighton and skip John Ward had a fine 27-9 win, but not quite enough to secure an overall victory.

Sunday saw Ottery celebrate the close of the season with the ‘Final Drive’. This was attended by 50 plus members all of whom enjoyed a fine afternoons bowling followed by a splendid ‘finger buffet’, thanks to club captain Sharon Kenny and her team of helpers.

Brian Salter won the pre-match ‘Spider’ and a bottle of scotch, generously donated by Sharon. Club chairman Gerry Beighton thanked Sharon for all her hard work and dedication over her two-year period as captain of the club, when the club has gone from strength to strength.

Ottery enjoyed a fair amount of success through the season, amongst them were the retention of the Jubilee Cup at Lyme Regis for the third year running!
