Twenty players and several supporters visited neighbouring Stonyhill Indoor Bowls Club on Saturday 7th January 2017 for the annual friendly fixture.
Although several members of the Brentwood squad also play at Stonyhill in the winter, the advantage was not enough to counter the might of the indoor experts who cruised to a 31-shot victory.
Brentwood came close to having a winning rink with Pam Robinson, Joan Stevenson, Maureen Jaycock and skip Ron Lofts who were drawing 15-15 as they went into the final end only to be pipped by a single shot.
Despite the disappointment, they had the consolation of individual prizes for best performing visiting rink presented by Brentwood men’s captain Fred Wasmuth.
Many of the visitors joined the hosts for a post-match meal served by Mike and Jan Smail of Norfolk-based JMS Catering, the same firrm hired for Brentwood’s presentation dinner last November.
Other Brentwood teams: Daphne Gilbert, Brian Martin, Fred Wasmuth, Adam Smith; Janet Howson, Maureen Murrell, Sandra Fenton, Byron Davies; Alison Hare, Ann Powell, Margaret Rayment, Cliff Jaycock; Ted Vidler, Marion Lofts, Kate Davies, Harry Egleton.
