Budleigh bowlers made a successful start to the new year.
Playing a Sidmouth Evening League match at Seaton Seagulls the Budleigh players had to battle through floods, but the return journey was a happy one with the points banked after a 26-12 victory.
Brian Evans skipped Terry Escott, Alan Purdham and Don Huish to a 26-12 victory.
After four ends, with the score at two-all, it appeared to be heading for a low-score close encounter, but on the fifth end Budleigh scored six and progressed in similar fashion to achieve a comfortable win.
A mixed home friendly versus Exeter’s Isca club resulted in wins on both rinks for Budleigh with a combined score of 41 shots to 34.
Brian Evans, Lilian Grainger, Diane Dixon and Ron Tyler led from the start and recorded a 21 - 17 win.
There was success also for Peter Burch’s rink who won 20-17.
