Banwell recorded an excellent county league victory over Ilminster, the reigning league champions.
Banwell A recorded one of their best-ever results by beating current Premier One champions Ilminster A.
Ilminster went the whole of the last season undefeated, but thanks to some grit and determination, Banwell won the match this year by two shots. All three rinks of Banwell left it late in this closely-fought game.
On rink one, J Davies’ rink were four shots down on the 19th end, but picked up four shots in the last two ends to draw. On rink two, D Johnston and his four were three shots down on the 19th end, but picked three shots on the last two ends to draw.
On rink four, M Davies’ quartet were four shots down on the 19th end, but picked up six on the last two ends to win.

In the only friendly match, Banwell sneaked a win by one shot over local rivals Ashcombe.
