Regular readers will know this competition is one of those that involves two rinks at home and two away with the combined scored accounting for the overall outcome and, on this occasion, Sidmouth won on three of the four rinks to secure an overall 71-57 success.

The home rink of Wendy Cox, Pat Poole and skip Freda Humphreys were 14-12 win winners while the away team of Jan J Bates, Chris Radburn and skip Zena Johnson bagged a 23-10 success and the other away team Mary Bristow, Lorna Lever and skip Jean Green, picked up a 17-11 win.

It all meant that Sidmouth banked eight of the available 10 points and that represents a great start to their campaign.

Sidmouth ladies were also involved in a Foxlands League fixture, taking on the powerful team that is Torquay United.

The other away rink played equally well, but were edged out by just a couple of shots and so, in similar fashion to the Sidmouth men in their Over-60s County meeting with Isca, the ladies were left devastated to lose the match by just two shots with the overall score 77-75 in favour of Torquay United
