Sidmouth men were involved in a most enjoyable – and competitive – match against neighbouring Madeira from Exmouth, writes Carol Smith.

The teams meet twice each indoor season and the matches are always close.

This latest encounter was no different and ended, fittingly, in a 53-all draw.

The best Sidmouth rink was the one of Jim Brown, John Chew, Ken Tolley and skip Bob Seldon.

The ladies met good friends from Budleigh Salterton for a friendly fixture. Budleigh are not blessed with the same sort of playing numbers that Sidmouth enjoy, and, with the current spate of sickness bugs doing the rounds, the visitors were loaned the services of one of the Sidmouth players, who ended up on the winning side as Budleigh took the match honours to the tune of a 35-32 score line.
