Sidmouth Over-60s A went down on both rinks in their Exeter and District League meeting at Madeira, writes Bert Hague.

Perhaps the 23-11 and 16-14 reversal can be put down to the players still feeling the effects of the missing disabled donkey!

The B team also played away on the same day when they were in action at Heavitree where they lost on one rink 21-12, but won on the other, 19-14.

The C team enjoyed home comfort for their meeting with Chardstock and won on one rink, 23-12, but they went down 18-16 on the other.

The D team played away at Seaton, losing on both rinks, 13-12 and 18-10, so, all in all, not the most successful of weeks for the club’s Ovfer-60s Triples League teams!
