Madeira men had a good win against Honiton in the first round of the Charles Parrott Shield, writes Jenny Charles.

This is a knockout competition for unbadged bowlers. Playing away, Richard Prince, David Macaulay, Graham Clarkson and Roy Walker had a score of 12-18.

At home Dave Franklin, Mike Marks, Neil Pond and Mike Perrott scored 23-14, and that all meant an overall three shot win for Madeira, who now progress to the next round of the competition.

In the men’s Over-60s County Trophy League, Madeira beat Budleigh Salterton 86-68, thus banking 21 of the maximum 22 points available from the fixture.

The two Madeira ladies’ teams in the Mason trophy were both involved in thrilling lose encounters with Budleigh Salterton.

The home team of Jenny Smith, Jean Rainton, Lyn Halpin and Jill Perrin won by a margin of four shots and the away team lost by a similar margin, which left an extra end needing to be played.

Lyn Halpin came in with the winning shot so Madeira won overall by a single shot.

Madeira now proceed to Torbay for the third round to be played in the new year.

Meanwhile, there was more progress made in the national triples competition for Jan Roberts, Janine Orchard and Catherine King after they defeated Jill Beer and her team from Kingsley to march on in the competition. Good luck, in the next round, ladies.
