In the Over 60s League last week, results were disappointing. Our A squad won only one rink, so gaining two points against Culm Vale A.

A Holland, T Pritchard, P Wilson, 26-10, J Mason, N Brimson, R Seldon, 12-22.

Sidmouth B likewise gained only two points for the one winning rink.

P Mison, P Clements, R Cook, 22-17. B Mortimer, J White, B Daniels, 10-26.

The C squad are all but down to Division 6, losing on both rinks to Starcross away. R Tallent, L Tobias, E Mills,12-19. R Graham, M Watson, J Richardson, 13-21. Only a "Dunkirk" effort will avert the all too familiar drop.

Away at Lyme Regis, we played a six- rink mixed triples match, winning 103 shots to 100.

M Smith, R Graham, E Stribling, 20-20. W Dunbar, M Borst, R Cook, 11-14. J Mountford, B Daniels, W Limpus, 22-12. D Mountford, S Graham, W Boddy, 13-22. R Tallent, D Jamieson, B Smith, 15-19. B Farmer, D Limpus, E Hewett, 22-13.

It has cartainly been a busy few days as far as the bowling is concerned. Sunday saw a home fixture against Ottery St Mary a five-rink mixed match which we won 102-85.

M Savage, C Rourke, P Wrench, R Cook, 18-17. A Appleby, B Farmer, J Chew, C Turner, 16-24.M Watson, J Quinn, J Wrench, M Borst, 25-13. R Denning, C Hunt, J Harrison, W Turner, 22-14. J Quinn, R Tallent, M Price, L Tobias, 21-17.

The home re-arranged Over-60 match played earlier this week gave Sidmouth maximum points. The B squad played Okehampton B squad and won 49-25.

B Smith, J White, R Cook, 30-10. J Chew, P Mison, W Boddy, 19-15. The C squad played Bradnich A squad away and, having lost to their B Squad just last week, a positive result was hardly expected. However, we won on both rinks, ensuring the eight points, which could prove invaluable in the quest to avoid relegation this season.

R Stubbs, W Turner, J Richardson, 21-8. J Wrench, M Watson, F Adlam, 21-13. Our team of R Tallent, D Bridgeman, B Mortimer, Eddy Mills came a creditable second at the Victory Bowl contest at Budleigh this week with a plus score of 8. Well done.
