It may have been a quiet week at Madeira but it was certainly a successful one.
LAST week proved to be another quite one at Madeira, writes Catherine King.
There was some action though, with pride of place going to the Madeira team competing in the National Triples.
The trio of J Roberts, P Harris and C King were involved in a close encounter with hosts Honiton.
The match, against the home trio of A Brown, J Grant and S Hiscocks was locked at 11-11, 15-15 and then 18-18 before the Madeira ladies picked up a pair on the final end to claim a narrow, and thrilling, victory.
In the Foxlands Trophy, Madeira played Torbay on a two-rink home and two-rink away, basis which resulted in Madeira being beaten on three of the four rinks.
Finally, J Roberts, C King and A Denner were in the Devon squad for the Atherley at Donyatt against Somerset where Devon were victorious on four of the six rinks played.
