A dozen players made the journey to the Essex resort where many took time out to enjoy lunch and a stroll along the prom before the real business of the day got under way in glorious sunshine at 2.30pm.

Over tea and cakes at the end of the day, Brentwood captain-for-the-day Fred Wasmuth revealed that the visitors had won 86 – 52 and his partnership with Kath Jolly and Ian Kirby had emerged as top rink with a 31-shot lead.

Other teams: Marion Lofts, Margaret Rayment, Richard Rose; Brian Martin, Ann Powell, Ron Lofts; Ken Collins, Dave Sach, Kate Davies.
