AUGUST GAMES

League games finished.

A big thank you to all C team players whose loyalty and enthusiasm is second to none

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

Rink 4 Steve,Tony,Derek  lost  9-21 on shots  and 6-12 on ends

Oh dear !!!!

15th August Home match against Wickford C

While our players enjoyed the game they didn't enjoy the result as we were beaten 3-0  despite their best effort.

Rink 1 Sue,Steve, Mike  lost 11-22 on shots and 6-12 on ends

Rink 2 James,Rex,Derek lost 12-29 on shots and 8-10 on ends

Rink 3 Barry, Penny ,Brian  lost 30-5 on shots and 6-12 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 .
