Billericay B v Ingatestone B Wednesday 8th May 2019
Mel Terry, Tony Martin, Peter Phillips and Mike Monk. 24-9
Derek Dowling, David Mersh, Chris Garnett and Ken Pipe. 23-11
Nigel Burrus, Barry Brown, Mike Field, and Mick Delay. 17-12
Our opposition played with one player short on two rinks and the above scores take that into account. Again a slow start but Mike’s rink were 5-4 up after 6 but then won 8 in a row. Ken’s rink were 9-10 down after 12 ends but then won five out of six to win comfortably. Mick’s rink had a tight finish at 17-16 but Ingatestone had their score rounded down. Obviously although it was a miserable night weather wise the final score gave us our first ten pointer.

Billericay B v Burnham C. Wednesday 1st May 2019
Mel Terry, Gordon Cook, Peter Phillips and Mike Monk. 16-13
Nigel Burrus, Derek Dowling, Ron Kreamer and Mick Delay 14-22
Mike Field, David Mersh,Chris Garnett and Ken Pipe 34-8
An encouraging start with Ken’s rink eventually dominating after being only 5-4 after 7ends. It was a much tighter game for Mike who was 13-13 after 15 ends but they managed to win the last 3 ends. Not quite so good for Mick but considering it was 2-20 after 11 ends the final score represented a comeback.
64 - 43 and 8 points to 2

Nigel Burrus, Derek Downing, Ron Kreamer, Mick Delay 17-16
Another good performance but on all 3 rinks we struggled initially. Ken’s rink were 1-14 down after 6 and although they came back it was not enough to win. On Mike’s rink although it was 9-8 after 8 ends they pulled away to win comfortably. Mick’s rink were involved in a close finish but after being 6 down after 4 the final score represented a fine comeback.
57-50 and 8 points to 2

Mel Terry, Derek Dowling, David Johnson and Chris Garnett 20-18
Another good evening and special thanks to Ian and David who stood in at the last minute to mean we had a full team. We were also without 2 regular skips but Chris and Peter were equal to the challenge. On Peter’s rink it was very close at 15-14 but they managed to take the last two ends. On Mike’s rink they were very comfortable throughout and he has continued his winning run. It was closer on Chris’s rink who lost a 9-1 lead to be down 12-14 after 13 ends but came good in the end. The winning run continues with another 10 points. I did look at the league table after 3 games and we were in second place.

Nigel Burrus, Barry Brown, Ron Kreamer and Mick Delay. 10-27
Mel Terry, David Mersh, Peter Phillips and Ken Pipe. 24-13
Not a night to remember as Mike Monk lost his unbeaten record ( I knew I would put the jinx on him ). Mick Delay did not fare much better and the only bright spot was a convincing win for Ken’s rink. However we did manage to maintain second position.

Derek Dowling,Gordon Cook, Mike Field and Chris Garnett. 14-13
Three really close games with the opposition who were undefeated this season. On Ron’s rink there was only one point in it after 15 ends but our opponents took the last 3. On Mick’s rink it was nip and tuck all the way through and although it was 11-11 after 16 the opposition took the final 2 ends. On Chris’s rink it was a slightly different story as they were just ahead for most of the game but contrived to give away 3 points on the 15th end to level the scores. It finally went to the last shot to give us a win by 1.
33 - 42. 2points to 8
Billericay B v Stock C Wednesday 5th June 2019
Steve Nichols, Robert Lock, Ian Burridge and Mike Monk. 21 - 15
Mel Terry, Tony Martin, Mike Yates and Ken Pipe. 22 - 4
Nigel Burrus, Barry Brown, Gordon Cook and Chris Garnett. 10 - 16
A good performance on two rinks gave us a convincing win and means we hold on to second place. On Ken’s rink they won all but 3 ends and Mel deserves a special mention for being consistently on the jack. Mike’s rink were in control for most of the game but did offer our opponents some hope after giving away 7 points. On Chris’s rink they were always behind but through no fault of Nigel who bowled well throughout. And a special welcome to Bob Lock and Steve Nichols playing their first game in the Chelmsford League. They obviously contributed to a good win for Mike.
Thanks to the wonders of modern technology I have managed to lose some reports so just the results of recent games.

A comfortable win on two rinks after both being down after the first few ends. A different story on Chris’s rink who came back from 12 down to win by one.

Derek Dowling, Barry Brown, David Johnson and Chris Garnett 23-17
A rearranged fixture so we had the same opposition as the night before. This time it was closer than the previous evening. Mike’s rink won a moral victory but as they played one short they forfeited 25% so ended 12-15. On Ron’s rink after a slow start they took a 20-13 lead after 16 but their opponents went into the last end one ahead but Billericay took one shot to earn a very creditable draw. On Chris’s rink they were well ahead for all of the game and they knew that they had to win by 4 shots to win overall. That looked easy until we gave away 5 shots on the penultimate end but managed to limit it to one on the last. Although this weeks table is not available yet this will see us consolidate 2nd place.
58 - 55 7 points to 3

Derek Dowling, Gordon Cook, Nigel Burrus and Chris Garnett 29-16
Ken’s rink were always playing catch up early on but from 15 ends onward the lead changed several times. They went into the final end 2 down but earned a hard won win with 4 shots on the last. On Mike’s rink they were 6-19 after 12 ends but managed to claw their way back to a creditable 6 shot defeat. A really good team effort on Chris’s rink with Nigel playing for the first time at 3 saw them score a 6 and 7 at crucial times which helped give us the overall win.

Mel Terry, Tony Martin, David Mersh and Ron Kreamer 15-12
Another good night which will see us maintain our position at the top.
Mike set the tone on his rink with a 5 on the first end and never looked back to record a convincing win. On Chris’s rink after finding themselves 0-6 down they then won eight of the next 10 to win comfortably. Ron had a much tougher assignment although starting well they were pulled back to lose 15-17 but the opposition only had 3 players so we won 15-12.
Billericay 10-0. 69-36

We have increased our lead by 2 points but it would seem Lionmede are in the same sort of form.
BillericayB v Falcon C. 7th August 2019
In someways a disappointing evening as opposition conceded although only two players short. We played the game as a friendly. However the really good news is we have another 10 points plus 30 shots gained.
An update ahead of today’s game at Ingatestone. Latest tables

Good luck to everyone tonight and sorry I cannot be with you. Chris Garnett.

On a miserable night in Ingatestone another overall win still sees us in line for promotion. Not knowing how the other teams got on but assuming they won 10-0 we still need another two points to make certain of promotion. Two excellent performances on Ron’s and Winston’s rink put us in a commanding position but On Mike’s rink they were against a skip who could do no wrong.
Biillericay 8-2. 49-38
The league has at last been updated as follows
RHP now have a game in hand and I must assume last Wednesday’s game was not played. We now only need 2 points to win promotion but 6 to win league on the assumption RHP get maximum points in their remaining 2 games. Good luck to everyone on Wednesday.

A frustrating evening on Mike’s and Chris’s rinks who were not at their best and went down heavily. We did know we only needed 2 points at the start of the evening and it was thanks to Ken and his team that this was achieved. We do not know if we are champions but promotion has been gained. It has been a really good team effort throughout the season and thanks to Ron and Gordon for keeping things going and creating a very good team spirit.
Billericay 2 - 8. 44-60
Just seen the final table and we missed out by two points. However disappointing it was still a very good effort.
