Ottery St Mary bowlers suffered a poor start to the week with defeat for the men in both of their Over-60s Triples League matches, writes Michael Smith.

The A team were beaten at home by Sidmouth A and the B Team suffered a similar fate in their home meeting with Bradninch A.

However, the ladies fared a lot better in their LNBTL match at home to Feniton, winning 58-15. taking both rinks; with Carol Keating, Sharon Kenny and skip Margaret Bright being the best rink, claiming a 31-6 success.

The poor weather curtailed most of the other fixtures during the week, including the ‘Redfern Trophy’ which has now been rearranged to be played on Saturday, August 12.

The latest EEML match was played on a relatively calm night at Culm Vale where it was Ottery who took the match honours to the tune of a 66-48 score line.

You may also want to watch:

It finished tow rinks apiece with Tony Bushell, Jan Richardson, Kevin Vernon and skip Dave Brown having a resounding 25-4 success.
