14th September - Bennett Cup

After 3 years of losses, Billericay have regained the mens Bennett Cup from Ingatestone, winning the four rinks by 14 shots overall. One ‘rink’ was played as a triples with both teams one player short and a minutes silence was held before the start, with the club flag at half mast.  A great result with the opposition at their strongest with the usual excellent Peter Dodson, John Snell, and Barry Crane playing.  The overall score was very close for much of the match but Billericay stayed the course and crept away to a comfortable lead at the end.  Most bowlers stayed for light refreshments, a good chat and Peter Dodson had to present the cup back to Billericay.

Rink 2 - Mel Terry, Winston Lansiquot, Mark Willsmer and skip Terry Cannon were always just a shot or two ahead in a close match, coming home winners 16-12

Rink 3 - Mick Yates, Brian Griffiths and Gary Kendal in the triples contest were well behind, 6-14 at end 13, but Ingatestone  never scored again, even conceding an 8 on the 15th, with Billericay winning 19-14 - an amazing turn round!

Rink 4 - Steve Nichols, David Barrett, John Friend and Brian Hyland started strongly, being 11-1 up after 6 ends. Ingatestone improved but with a good all round team effort Billericay won well 26-14

Rink 5 - Jim Collins, Ron Kreamer, Norman Bunce and skip Graham Brooker were 6 all after 8 ends, slipped to 9-17 after 15 ends, then edged the last few ends to finally lose 13-20.
