Several Sidmouth bowlers went off to Abbrook Park Bowls Club last Saturday to support our club’s ‘Dynamic Duo’ Brenda Somerfield and Jill Bishop, who were playing in the semi-final of the Ladies’ County Over-55 Pairs, writes Carol Smith.
The weather was good and the greens were full of other county competition semi-finals and finals which meant for a busy green and slots of action for spectators to take in!
Brenda and Jill were up against a strong pair from South Molton.
After what was certainly a compelling encounter, the Sidmouth pairing won 24-14.
After an excellent luncheon, superbly prepared by Abbrook ladies, Brenda and Jill went on to play the final against a pair from Yelverton.

This too was a superb contest with some top drawer of bowling on view.
However, this time the match honours went to the Yalverton duo.
