Billericay “B” v Memorial Park.  Match score 32 - 49. Points 0-7.

Needed 1 point from this match to remain in the 3rd. division.  We came close on one rink where we lost by one shot on the last end, this means we will go down to the fourth division on shot difference.

Rink 3. Gill, David B, David A (Skip)
6 - 0 down after 3 ends, pulled back to go level 10-10 on the 14th. then 11-11 on the 16th then one shot up on the next end put us one up going to the last end where sadly their Skip picked up two shots with his last wood, which meant we lost 12-13

Rink 4. Shirley, Jon, Jeff (Skip)
7- 0 up after three ends, lost the next 7 ends to go 7-13 down at that point, only scored another 4 shots over the last 8. Final score 11-19.

5-5 after 7 ends, then only won 3 more ends.  Well beaten, Final score 9-17

17/08/23 - Billericay "B" v Springhouse (Home)

Springhouse failed to arrive therefore we are claiming a maximum 7 points and 30 shots (subject to the approval of the League Secretary).

This gives us a better chance of avoiding relegation with just one match remaining.


10/08/23 - Billericay "B" v Runwell "B" (Away)

Match Score: 37-65; Points: 0-7

A very warm, sunny evening on an excellent green but one where nothing seemed to go our way.  A similar story on all three rinks, where no matter how well the front end bowled, the opposition skips always seemed to be able to come in and negate our hard work.

Rink 4: Heather, Mike S, David B (Skip)
Apart from a single on the 4th end, we didn't score again until the 9th end. Later ends were better, scoring three shots on end 11 and two shots on each of ends 13,14 and 17.
Final Score: 11-20

Rink 5: Gill, Jon, David A (Skip)
Despite making an excellent start to be leading 7-0 after the second end, the opposition retaliated with some high scores - five shots on end 4, seven shots on end 8, five on end 12 and six on end 13.
Final Score: 19-27

Rink 6: Shirley, Mel, Jeff (Skip)
A good start, winning the first two ends, but only managed to win three further ends.
Final Score: 7-18

Score lines which in general didn't reflect the overall standard of our play.

03/08/23 - Billericay "B" v VCA Riverview

Match Score 24-49, Points 0-7

Owing to unforeseen circumstances, we were only able to field two rinks so the above result reflects a penalty of 2 points and 10 shots.

A slightly unusual game, punctuated by several unscheduled appearances by tennis balls on the rinks from the adjacent courts!  We were up against a tough opposition who were playing at least two county standard bowlers.

Rink 2:- Heather, Lorraine, Mike (Skip)
A difficult first half, winning only 3 of the first 10 ends - 12:3 down.  After the tea break they enjoyed a better run with 3 shots on the 12th end and 4 on the 16th.  Final score 14-21.

Rink 3:- Jon, Shirley, David A (Skip)
A tough game with the opposition winning 10 ends. Billericay picked up 3 shots on ends 3 and 12, otherwise all singles.  This game was abandoned after 17 ends when the automated sprinkler system decided it was time to give the green and everyone on it a good soaking!! Final Score 10-18
