It’s been another busy past week for the Ottery St Mary bowlers, writes Peter and Janet Bebb.

In the Two Counties League match against Tiverton Borough Ottery recorded a good result winning on three rinks and losing on just one to claim an overall victory at 92.

Next up a County Trophy match against Sidmouth played at home and away and this saw Ottery lose one rink at home and one away, but that did not prevent them winning overall by a score of 89-63.

In a men’s Over-60s match played at Sidmouth Ottery recorded a second win over their near neighbours inside a week with the Ottery B team seeing off Sidmouth C 40-36.

In another Over-60s encounter, this time against Heavitree, despite slipping to a rare defeat, the team still sit in a top two berth in the table.

In friendly matches Ottery had a good win at home over Lyme Regis, losing just one rink on their way to an emphatic 84-49 triumph.

That lone rink loss was by the narrowest of margins – one shot, at 16-15!

A mixed triples match against Budleigh Salterton played at home over six rinks proved to be a close encounter with each club claiming success on three rinks, but with Ottery the overall 100-92 winners.

The triples game at home against Exonia was another close run thing with both teams winning on two rinks, but again Ottery prevailed in terms of the overall result, bagging an 81-72 success.

Last, but certainly not least this week, congratulations to the club’s Terry House on receiving his County Badge.
