Reports Basildon "C"

Corringham & Fobbing C  Home 24th August

A dreary and wet evening contrasted an friendly team. With the conditions as they were, a game of 12 ends was decided (as per the rules) however this did not work in our favour and we lost on all rinks despite some good play by Billericay. One "rogue" bowl can take a 5 bowl lead to a 1 bowl defeat as was witnessed more than once :-(

Team 1 lost 7-18 and lost 9 of the ends

Team 2 Lost 6 -10 while drawing on ends

Team 3 lost 8-10 while winning 7 of the 12 ends

Pitsea B   18th August Home

On our own green we succeeded in winning and securing 7 points

Team 1 : won 17-14

Team 2 Won 13-12

Team 3 Won 23-9

Corringham & Fobbing B  11th August Away

Perfect Bowls weather , a green in good condition and a friendly opposition saw Billericay gain 2 points from one rink win.

Billericay fought hard but the away skip on rink 3 was on top form and our skip could only reduce the deficit

Rink 1  lost 17-19  winning 8 ends

Rink 2 Won 19-17 winning 10 ends

Rink 3 Lost 11-22 winning 8 ends

Thurrock   3rd August  Away

This was the first time we had played at Thurrock so we had no expectations of the rinks .

Following the previous day's rain we were met with a friendly team and a heavy green but in good condition.

Our experience from playing them at the beginning of the season told us we had a fight on our hands  and fight we did.

Rink 1 lost 15-24

Rink 2 Won 13-12

Rink 3 drew 19-19 having been trailing 3-11 at end 7

So we gained 3 points away.. well done everyone, especially David Mersh who stepped up as skip


Corringham & Fobbing C 14th July  Home

Match cancelled due to inclement weather. Rearranged for Thursday 24th August

Carreras      7th July    Away    

Perfect weather, an interesting green and a welcoming opposition but a disappointing result. However we welcomed new players, who enjoyed the experience if not the result.

Rink 3 : Lost 10-20 but won 9 of the 18 ends

Rink 4: drew 20-20 despite leading 20-19 on end 17

Rink 5: lost 4-26

Pitsea B        16th June       Away   Game

A balmy evening, a beautiful ground but not such a positive result.

It was a close game for all rinks but the home team prevailed, winning on all rinks

Rink 1 : lost 12-16  (won 8 ends)

Rink 2 : lost 15-18 ( won10 ends)

Rink 3: lost   12-15 (won 8 ends)



Corringhan & Fobbing B          9nd June       Home   Game

Yet another beautiful evening sharing the green with Basildon B. This time C team had rinks 1,2 3.This was the return match  in contrasting conditions.

Once again Billericay won 2 rinks to 1 and once again the losing team lost by sufficient shots to lose the bonus point but we gained 4 points so not all bad.

Rink 1 Won    16-14

Rink 2 won    16-11

Rink 3 lost      9-26

Thurrock           2nd June       Home   Game

A beautiful green, superb weather and and a team we have never played before but a result we would rather forget.

Everyone one did their best and many shots were won and missed  by the narrowest of margins but it was not our night.

Rink 3 Lost  8-28

Rink 4 lost 9-33

Rink 5 lost 9-16

Wickford B        26th May       Away   Game

A beautiful evening and friendly opponents gave us hope for a good match. However the green had some peculiarities which influenced our bowls in not such a positive manner and we were beaten 2 rinks to one, gaining just 2 points.

RInk 2 Lost 8-27 ( winning 6 ends)

Rink 3  Won 17-12  ( winning 10 ends)

Rink 4 lost 15-21  ( Winning 9 ends)

Corringham, and Fobbing C      12th May 2023    Away Game

In contrast to the previous week the weather was cold and uncomfortable. However Billericay C won the match 2 rinks to one and gained 4 points. 

Unfortunately one rink lost heavily so the opposition got the bonus points on shot difference

Rink 1 lost 9-36

Rink 2 won16-15

Rink 3 won 14-8

Carreras B      5th May 2023    Home Game

An unexpected beautiful evening saw Billericay C team win the opening match of the season and take a maximum of 7 points, which gave everyone a good feeling. Thanks to Ron and Gordon, who were in attendance as Billericay B were playing, the players were presented with after game refreshments as soon as the match finished, another bonus.

Rink 4: Chris W, David M, Bob Lock  won 19-18

Rink 5: James C, Mike F, Ian B  won 15-12

Rink 6: Penny K, Vic M, Lynn M won 30-10
