Sidmouth played both home and away against Ottery in the county trophy, writes Bert Hague.

A terrific 87-64 does, I believe, lift the team off the bottom of the league. Well done all involved.

In the Exeter and District Over-60s Triples League there was a 32-31 success for the A team when they met Pinces Gardens.

The B team also won with an 18-12 score and a 14-14 draw against Culm Vale.

However, not such good news for the C team who unfortunately went down 43-38 at home against Tiverton West End. Sidmouth D entertained Broadclyst and beat the visitors 33-29.
