DEVON WIN LIBERTY TROPHY For the first time since 1992/3 (15/4/2017)
Devon have won the Liberty Trophy, and at last the tag as under achievers has been removed, beating Cumbria 114 - 82 at Nottingham IBC on Saturday 15th April 2017. The game started off very evenly and at 5 ends Devon were behind 28 - 30 but by 10 ends Devon had started to prove their superiority and forged ahead 60 - 46 and by 15 ends have moved to 90 - 67 in front. There was no way back for Cumbria as Devon tightened their grip on winning the trophy for the first for 25 years, a truly magnificent season of Liberty results!

DEVON RETAIN NATIONAL U25 INTER COUNTY DOUBLE RINK @ Melton Mowbray (26/3/17)
In a very close and hard fought match against Lincolnshire Devon went in to the last end with the scores at 31 - 31 and with J Hampton`s rink playing the last end. As the end developed with just the skips to play, and shot changing with most woods delivered, Devon were shot down but after two terrific bowls it was left to the Lincolnshire skip to save the game!! Fortunately he failed and Devon were crowned England champions for the second year running!!!!!!!
K Kniveton; S Eveleigh; W Stevens; Z Kidd v J Philpott 15 - 20
K Daniels; S Apsey; H Goodwin; J Hampton v J West 17 - 11
