The past week was certainly another good one for the bowlers of Sidmouth, writes Bert Hague.

The Over-60s A team were winners on both rinks (13-11 and 15-14) in their success at home to Crediton.

On the same day Sidmouth B matched that with 22-11 and 18-17 successes to see off Ottery.

Completing a marvellous triple triumph were the C team who bagged a 33-3 and an 18-15 double success at Belmont.

Touring side, Leicester City and Parks, a name to conjure with, pitched up with a mixed team of seven rinks for a Saturday match that saw Sidmouth won 163-91.

Five ladies, Zena, Josie, Anita, Karen and Lynda provided an excellent tea. A trip to Madeira for the annual 21-end triples contest saw Sidmouth win on five of the six rinks.

All the games were close, but the combination of John Greenaway, Bert Hague and David Fairclough with a score of 17-13, proved to be highest on the day.

It would appear that the hunt is still on for our missing wicker donkey. Our Over-60s A team are certainly missing the luck its presence makes. We do hope the culprits do not turn out to be bowling rivals.

Certainly, stranger things have happened.
