Sidmouth bowlers played three friendly matches in the closing week of February, writes Ron Cook.
First up was a visit to Taunton where the Sidmouth bowlers found the going tough with just one rink taking honours. That was the one skipped by Jean Green and also comprising of Dave Lever, Liz Boyle and Derek Mountford, who enjoyed a 16-11 success as Taunton secured an overall 78-30 victory.
It was a similar story on the visit to Dawlish where again, only one skip managed to bag a win. That was the ne Kevin Walsh, Joan Monaghan, Katherine Hunt and skip Ken Robertson who helped secure a single shot overall success thanks to their 36-6 win. The final score was 61-60 in favour of Sidmouth who recorded a 70-46 victory. Two of the three Sidmouth rinks were winners with the one of Pat Hague, Mick Cox, Wilf Radburn and skip Bert Hague taking no prisoners in their 35-10 success.
In the run up to the indoor season’s conclusion all the Sidmouth club leagues are finely balanced.
