ST ANDREWS started their indoor competitive season in fine form, beating Watchet in the Egham Trophy.

The two away rinks did exceptionally well, Andrew Owens rink drawing and Barrie Forse’s rink with a seven shot win. It was different fortunes at home, Tony Steer’s rink were outbowled by 14 shots, but Gordon Wride’s rink more than compensated with a 28 shot victory. Saints finishing with a 21 shot win.

The first of the Over-60s double rinks was played against Victoria Street. Barrie Forse’s rink had a comfortable win in the end by 10 shots, while the away rink of Tony Steer kept things tight despite holding two fives, a six and a seven and losing the ends to a skip in devastating form, but came away with just a two shot deficit. Saints winning overall by eight shots.

The mixed friendly on Sunday against North Petherton saw an outstanding win for the Saints by 41 shots. Phil Villis’s rink contributing 26 of these.
