Essex County friendly

A 20-strong Brentwood squad travelled to Southend on Wednesday 8th March 2017 for the annual indoor friendly against Essex County.

Five rinks were in play and despite losing 113 – 86, the visitors took comfort from wins on two rinks.

The top rink with a five-shot difference was made up of Brian Martin, Patrick Miller, Peter Wilson and Maureen Jaycock (skip). On the second winning team with a four-shot difference were Ann Powell, Richard Rose, Margaret Rayment and skip Keith Newberry.

Other teams: Daphne Gilbert, Cliff Jaycock, Trevor Pedley, Geoff Byatt; Marina Thorne, Joan Stevenson, Brian Duffield, Harry Egleton; Alan Medcraft, Maureen Murrell, Ted Vidler, Kate Davies.

After the game, players tucked into a hearty meal of sausage and mash followed by jam roly-poly and custard.

Visiting captain-for-the-day Richard Rose thanked the host club for their hospitality and said he looked forward to Brentwood’s return later in the year for an outdoor fixture.
