Eddie skittles to one pin of club record

The cricketing skittlers were in terrific form in their latest Sampford Peverell and District Skittles League match when they saw off visiting Globetrotters by 20-pins in a match that saw ‘sticker-up’ Liam Reed replace no fewer than 984 pins!

Eddie ‘Eagle’ Andress was the star of the show as he fired a spectacular 93 – just one shy of the club record still held by cricket chairman Derrick Foan. The Eddie score included no fewer than FIVE spares – one of them a 24 – and he was 14 pins ahead of the ‘best of the rest’ on the night which was a four-spare 79 from Rob Acton. Derrick Foan chipped in with a two spare 60 and Phil Chappell contributed a single spare 56.

Will Birley (two spares) and Chris Acton (one spare) both returned scores of 55 and Dave Trump had a one spare 54. Ryan Shrewsberry was the lowest score on the night, but he still chalked up a half century. For the Globetrotters, they actually had a no fewer than five of their skittlers into the 60’s, but that Eddie Andress huge score made sure the winning team was the home team! skittles
