Billericay C v Wickford B 12th August 2022
Yet another beautiful evening, a welcoming opposition and of course our loyal and willing players.
It is a shame that our playing is not always reflected in the score as we were once again defeated. :-(
Rink 5 achieved a draw on the last shot of the last end so al least we salvaged one point. They also took 10 of the 18 ends
Rink 6 lost 14-22 while taking 9 of the 18 ends
Rink 7 lost 19-30 taking only 5 ends although did manage a score of 7 on end 11 and 6 on end 15.
Thank you to the Wickford team who showed patience with our struggling players.
Billericay C v Springhouse 29th July 2022
Another beautiful evening, a welcoming opposition and of course our loyal and enthusiastic players but that was all.
The ground was unpredictable , the toilet facilities not their finest feature and no refreshments at all.
It started on a low note when one player failed to appear but we seconded a Springhouse player so at least everyone got a game.
Not surprisingly we lost on all rinks 7-20,11-19, 18-21
I expect next season Springhouse will not be in division 4
