WOODSPRING Indoor Bowls Club enjoyed their annual challenge, a special day of bowling.

Four teams played six 50-minute games of two-wood triples. The overall winners were the green team, who won five of their games and drew their sixth.

The team comprised Arlene Pilgrim, Sue Lupton, Gordon Russell, Di Ward, Stephen Andrews, Derek Cooper and Mike Bass, with non-playing captain Sylvia Noyes.

WEDMORE men’s good run in the national club knockout competition, the Denny Cup, came to a grinding halt as they encountered Taunton Deane.

A strong finish from them meant a Taunton win 23-13. Eddie Payne’s side also started well at home, leading to end 13, but then Taunton put in some high scores and won 29-16.

The away teams, skippered by Ron Barron and Dave Nicholls, were both well beaten.

Wedmore 51, Taunton Deane 113: D Collins, D Stansfield, K Pettit, S Eastment 13-23; T Brown, J Runciman, K Philimore, E Payne 16-29; B Back, K Burt, C Moss, R Barron 11-29; R Newell, M Green, R Thurkettle, D Nicholls 11-32.

In a mixed friendly at home, Wedmore met Wells. Skippers Alan Birch and Maureen Hordle both led their teams to decisive victories.

The match was played in an excellent spirit and much credit is due to the Wells contingent as many of their players do not play regularly indoors.
