THE St Andrews triple of Ken Uglow, Barrie Forse and Andrew Owens qualified for another national finals day at Nottingham in April.

They played a triple from Ilminster in the area final at Street, but proved too strong as the opposition retired after 17 ends.

Forse also won the area singles final and competed at Melton Mowbray at the weekend, but was defeated in the early rounds.

In the County League, Saints played Donyatt. The two away rinks found the going tough, Phil Villis going down by eight shots and Forse by three.
