Sidmouth bowlers continued what is an excellent indoor season so far with yet another hot shot, writes Carol Smith.

Just a week after we were celebrating a hot shot, along comes another and this time it came in a friendly meeting with Topsham Bowl Club on Saturday afternoon.

Sidmouth took the match honours by a margin of five shots at 81-76. The team that recorded the hot shot was made up of two couples – unusually, it must be said as it does not always work putting partners and/or spouses together – but it clearly did this time! Well done, Launa and Dave Lever and Jill Ashton and Peter Mison.

The feel-good factor continued as the Sidmouth ladies secured a 56-42 success in a most enjoyable meeting with Axminster ladies. The best Sidmouth rink was the one of Mary Turner, Rita Daw and skip Pat Harvie.

Pat is a very long-standing member of our club and has been ladies’ indoor secretary for longer than I can remember. So, at the last club annual general meeting, she was awarded the honour of club president. This accolade is so richly deserved. Well done, Pat.

Sidmouth men made their first venture into the Inter Club competition last week and they were successful as they recorded a narrow 81-76 victory. With wins on three of the four rinks it meant that the Sidmouth team banked six points for their efforts to go with the six points they got for the win, which equates to 12 out of 14 points from the first match – a terrific start!

The best rink was the one of Tony Brown, Chas Coates, John Chew and skip Ron Cook with a score of 20-16.

So, the past week has been one of win, win and win again. Here’s hoping the success continues next week when our ladies play in another round of the Yetton Trophy against another very strong team from Isca Bowling Club in Exeter.
