Players from Brentwood Bowling Club visited Clacton on Friday 15th July 2016 for the annual friendly.
Many of the group arrived early to make the most of the welcome fine weather, and while some strolled along the seafront, others gathered for alfresco morning coffee followed by a carvery lunch.
There was also a warm welcome awaiting from captain Barry Frost and his squad at the local club where five rinks of triples were played.
Brentwood won on four of the rinks to win the day 93 – 70 and the good fortune continued with the after-match raffle where Brentwood carried off four of the six prizes, with one going to Brentwood’s sole supporter Ann Rose.
After tea and cakes, the home captain formally welcomed the visitors and Brentwood men’s captain Richard Rose responded saying: “I think it’s marvellous that every time we come here, you arrange good weather.”
After the usual thank-yous to catering and bar volunteers, Richard presented small gifts to the host captain and to Brentwood’s winning team of Ann Powell, John Young and skip Ron Jolly.
Other Teams: Kath Jolly, Kate Davies, Richard Rose; Patrick Miller, Trevor Pedley and Sandra Fenton; Peter Smith, Cliff Jaycock and Byron Davies; Les Powell, Brian Martin and Maureen Jaycock.
