Reports Basildon "C"

Friday 14th June- Billericay C V  Wickford B

Result  Defeat  40-87 Rink 0-3

The weather was kind, not too cold and dry and we were, as usual ,optimistic and raring to go.  However our optimism was gradually eroded but our determination was ever present.

Rink 2 Penny,James,Lynn lost 20-23 despite being 20-20 at end 16. End 17 was lost by a measure and end 18 was lost by the closest of positions which was disappointing. I'm sure if end 17 had been in our favour we would have taken the rink. we were 9-9 on ends

Rink 3 Edith, Michelle,Sue lost 8-42 with the final insult being  a 9 shot win on the last end ( a measure for shots 8 & 9) and the captain wanting a certificate to celebrate. Again our bowlers delivered  good bowls but they we able to beat them. lost 5-13 on ends

Rink 4 Marion,David Bob lost 12-24 despite leading at end 9. Lost 8-10 on ends


Friday 31st May- Billericay C V  South Benfleet & Canvey D

Result  Defeat  39-56 Rink 2-1

The weather was cold with a sharp wind blowing, the sky was black and the green not at its best but as usual we were in good spirits and ever optimistic. The opposition were late due to being told it was a 6pm start and it started with us losing the toss....downhill from there. While Rink 3 were against new players their skip was a coach who was obviously a good player and compensated for the lack of experience. The other two teams has one new player but two experienced players so this new to Basildon league team was not so inexperienced.

While rink 4 was beaten it was often by one bowl that destroyed a holding position.

Well done to Vic Morhall for being a first time skip to two new players

RInk 3 Sandra,Bob B, Ian won17-13  but drew on end 9-9

Rink 4 Penny,David L, Lynn  lost 8-20 and 6-12 on ends

Rink 5 Marion,John, Vic lost 14-23 and 6-12 on ends



Friday 24th May- Billericay C V  Billericay B

Result  Defeat 58-40   Rink 3-0

We had high hopes of a win but the experience of Our B team players shattered our dreams on a beautiful night but not such a beautiful green.

RInk 3 Penny, Marion, Sue. They had a shaky start to an all male team and were down by 10 on end 8 but perseverance saw them close to gap and from end 9 they scored 12 shots against 8 shots to a final score of 13-18 with some good bowls. 

RInk 4 David L, James Bob L . This was a closer game with the score being level at end 11 and the team holding more ends. However  a loss of 5 on end12 saw Billericay B draw ahead and the end score being 15-21 ( draw on ends) Well played

Rink 5: Maureen, Vic, Lynn  The result was 12-19 but this did not reflect the quality of our bowling for often we were holding. By end 8 we were down 0-12. However from end 9 we scored a further 12 shots to their 7 thereby closing the gap. Despite all my effort I was no match for the skill and experience of Roy Green !

Friday 17th May- Billericay C V  Corringham & Fobbing B

Result  win 50-39   Rink 2-1

Rink 3 Sandra W, Bob B, Ian B won 18-6 and won14 ends

Friday 10th May- Billericay C V Brentwood Home

Result Lost  82-36

On beautiful evening we welcomed a team from Brentwood who were in fact old adversaries from Hutton Poplars with a few extras.         While the result was not what we would have liked, it did not reflect some of the good play that Billericay produced which was commented on by the opposition. However it was enjoyable and gave some newer players more experience against seasoned players.

Rink 3 Edith, Bob L, Lynn  lost 12-25  

Rink 4 Sandra, Bob B, Ian  lost 14-25

Rink 5John J, James C, Brian  lost 10-32

We will not give up!


Friday 3rd May - Billericay' C'  v. Basildon 'B' ( away )

Result: Lost  67 - 35 shots

As usual the start of the season saw a wet cool day  but that did not dampen the enthusiasm of our team that included new bowlers. They were introduced to the use of wet mats and a static mat and of course a heavy green.

Rink 2 Penny K, Bob L and Sue F( 1st time as skip) put on a good show but were out classed by more experienced players Final result 5-32 

Rink 3 Marion L,J Cattherall and Ian B  were leading up to end 15 but losses on end 16 & 17 saw a final result 18-19.

Rink 4 Maureen F, Vic M, Lynn M  started with a 7 shots against but battled on and  began to close the gap winning 8 of the 18 ends to finish 12-16.

Well done team new players and our new skip. Onwards and upwards !
