Unfortunately the home team lost on all three rinks, but it was a fun morning, followed by a satisfying lunch.

A friendly match against Axminster was also lost by two rinks to one. However, the League teams have done excellently. The Lane League team scored eight points against Madeira followed by the Foxland’s team who also scored eight points against Budleigh Salterton Well done, to them!

The Sidmouth men entertained the county president, John Berry, and his team on the following day, but despite winning two of the three rinks, finished second on points at 51-46.

Last weekend there was a three rink triples meeting with Honiton. Trevor Smith, Allan Davis and John Mason returned the only winning card (16-10), in a closely fought game that saw Honiton just edge the match by two shots.
