27th August Away Match against Pitsea 'C'
Yet another defeat for our enthusiastic and loyal C team. I really cannot say we played badly , in fact I witnessed some excellent shots by all players but it seemed our opposition could knock out our holding woods or employ wicks to ensure their bowls were effective. While we were disappointed we enjoyed the match even if we played the last two ends in somewhat diminished light!!!.
Rink 2 : Sue,Derek, Michelle lost 12-27 on shots and 6-12 on ends
Rink 3: Steve,Lynn,Mike lost 10-25 on shots and 6-12 on ends
Rink 4 Rex,Tony, Sandra lost 9-26 on shots and 5-13 on ends
22nd August Away Match against Castlepoint
Our run of defeats continued with a three rink defeat by the home team. While we bowled to a good standard ,the home team seemed to both know their own green and had what seemed an element of luck. However we are not downhearted and enjoyed playing this wonderful game.
Rink 1: Penny,Lynn,Mike lost 14-21 on shots and 6-12 on ends
Rink 2 Sandra,Michelle, Brian lost 16-21 on shots but drew 9-9 on ends

9th August Away match against Memorial Park
We were lucky to avoid the rain but strong winds did seem to influence the run of the bowls, at least we thought so!!
Despite one of our players being unavailable to play at the last minute the opposition captain stepping in to allow the bowling to take place the match was enjoyable in a friendly atmosphere.
Despite all Billericay teams leading up to end twelve we were ultimately defeated 2-1 .
Rink 2 Sandra,Derek Lynn lost 11-22
Rink 3 Sub,Michelle,Mike lost 15-16
Rink 4 Penny, Tony, Brian Won 19-14
On an unkind note one of our players was met with a vitriolic response when desperately needing to use the toilet in the Wickford club.
As part of the bowling fraternity it would be nice if these basic amenities could be shared with all players not just when we are their opposition, after all we are a civilized society .
