Barnstaple Bowling Club members have made an excellent start to their season with progress in various competitions.
They kickstarted the season with a win over neighbouring United Services in the Mens` National 2x4. Then followed wins in the Burma Star Mixed Triples by Jackie Hemmings-Anthony, Peter McNeil and John Short and by Peter McNeil and his wife Toni over a Bideford pair in the L & R J Smerdon Mixed Pairs.
Mark Humfrey and Ernie West continued the success with a win in the first round of the Devon Unbadged Pairs competition and club president Maureen Dunkin teamed up with her sister-in-law and ladies captain June Wallis to record a win over Bideford Victoria Park in the National O/70 Pairs.
The winning streak went on as vice captain Marion Redfern and Audrey Long both progressed to the next round of the National O/55 Singles. Maurice Gay and Colin Withey were yet others who added to this tremendous start to the season in the Unbadged Pairs competition.
