The section three ladies played their annual match against the County President and her team and this year the meeting was played at Budleigh Salterton, writes Carol Smith.

Badged and un-badged players can put their names forward to play in this and five Sidmouth ladies Sue Turner, Jan Thomson, Chrissie Leedham, Valerie Newnham and Jill Bishop, were selected to play. It proved to be an excellent day and the bowling was certainly of the close encounter type as the section three team won by a margin of just two shots.

A friendly was played at Bradninch involving four mixed triples. It was all played out in glorious weather with good company and some lovely rural surroundings - oh yes, and it also produced a Sidmouth win with success on three of the rinks with the other ending all square.

The final score was 84-44 and the best of the Sidmouth rinks was the one of Liz Boyle, Kevin Walsh and skip Jill Mison, who enjoyed a terrific score of 29-10.

Sidmouth men's Over-60s Triples League B team continue to hold top spot in Division Three of the Exeter & District Bowls League.
