Brentwood men’s captain Richard Rose welcomed the visitors and said: “Byron and I both joined this club at roughly the same time and that was probably more years ago than either of us care to remember.

“This year it has been very pleasing that Byron has been given the honour of being president of EVPA. Likewise it has been an honour for our club and has given us the opportunity of hosting this game.”

The friendly was played on six rinks and ended with the visitors winning by 134 – 92 shots. Richard skipped on Brentwood’s winning rink with Paul Harrison, Charles Thorne and Geoff Cope who were presented with notebooks to mark their achievement.
