BMBA 7th of June Match Report

The Association enjoyed another bowling afternoon at Flackwell Heath on Thursday, 7th June. 

With the help of 2 players provided by the home team, a match of 5 Rinks was played in a good temperate climate with a brief spell of a few drops of rain.

The BMBA got off to a good start and at half time were leading by 19 shots.  However, it all changed after tea.  BMBA managed to win on 2 rinks and draw on another but Flackwell Heath’s 2nd half rally provided them with a final score of 104 against the Association’s 93.  Therefor a loss to us of 11 shots.  The winner of the Charity competition was a lady from Flackwell heath who predicted a win for them by 10 shots.

The highest winning rink for the BMBA, by 9 shots, was  :  Laurie Ekins, Jean Vincent ( guest ), Bill Pipe and Alan Brindle, narrowly pipping Maggie Pipe, Brian Bristow, John Mansfield and Jim Lumsden who won by 8 shots.

As usual, Flackwell Heath made us most welcome and provided a lovely meal after the game.  The green bowled very well and we look forward to returning there for our American Tournament on 17th August.
