Budleigh Bowling Club - the latest news on and off the indoor green

BUDLEIGH hosted Ottery St. Mary in a two rink mixed friendly match last week, writes Paul Griffin.

The game proved to be a one-sided affair with the hosts winning on both rinks and by 56-16 overall.

Rob Jerrard’s rink of Rita De Selincourt, Diane Dixon and Mike Reader won 31-7 and Gerry Robert’s foursome of Wally Nickels, Avis Bartlett and Lilian Grainger were 27-9 victors.

Budleigh then entertained Honiton in a two rink mixed friendly which turned out to be a much tighter affair.

When tea was taken after ten ends, the score stood at sixteen all, but, in the remaining eleven ends, the visitors edged ahead to win 36-31 with the rinks being shared.

The winning Budleigh rink, who gained four shots on the last three ends to win 19-17, was skipped by Rob Jerrard with Rita De Selincourt, John Vanstone and Brian Ellery.

In the Symes Robinson and Lee sponsored Budleigh Evening League it was a good week for Exonia, they beat Madeira Red 45-25 with the rinks shared and then followed it up with a 37-30 victory over the Budleigh Buzzards by winning on one rink and tying the other.

Madeira Blue beat their fellow team Madeira Red 39-27 by winning on one rink and tying the other.
