Men's County League - 14th March 2020

On Saturday 14th March the men played their last County League game of the season, it was against Ilford.    The home team won on all three rinks thus gaining the maximum of 5 points.   The away team won on two rinks and loosing on one. They took 3 of the 5 points. As we were the overall winners we gained an extra 3 points, taking 11 of the possible 13 points.  An excellent way to finish the year. 

Well done to all players who took part this year.  

A great thank-you to all those who played this year in both the County League and the Over 60's League from  Richard Robins, Colin Vinter and Barrie Clements.

WMBC versus Essex Vice-Presidents Association - 10th March 2020

On Tuesday 10th March West Mersea's men entertained the Essex Vice-President Association in the annual indoor event.  It was a close fought game with 2 home rinks winning but losing overall by 2 shots. The game was played in good humour and comradeship. Our captain presented our highest winning rink of; Gavin Miklaucich, David Jones, Howard Young and Brian Littlewood with a miniature Presecco each. He then exchanged gifts with the Essex Vice-President Keith Riley. He thanked David Cotter who came in at the very last moment to play.

The Catering Ladies provided sandwiches and refreshments to the visitors on arrival and an excellent hot meal to all players and their guests following the game.

Mens Over 60's Inter-Club County League - 3rd February 2020

In a season where 'good results' in the County League/Competitions are somewhat thin on the ground, it makes it all the more pleasing to report on a successful match in the Over 60's A-League against Walton (on-the-Naze). Our single rink at home, comprising Malcolm Cameron, Jack Crowhurst, Graham Brookes and Bob Biffin, produced a fighting performance to come back from a 3-12 deficit, after 9 ends, to achieve a more-than-creditable 16-16 draw, made all the more remarkable due to the fact that they won the last 4 ends with a single shot on each end. Add this feat to the victory, by 12 shots, of our away team - David Jones, Brian King, Steve Warner and Barrie Clements, and this makes the resulting overall match score of 5-1 in our favour, all the more pleasing.

New Year's Drive - 19th January 2020

The first extra event of the year was a resounding success.

The drive was organised by the 2 Daves with their usual flair and efficiency.  Thank you to them both.

The winners being Rosie Bird, Gwen House, Sue Conway and Viv Smith.

This was followed by a roast dinner prepared by Sue and Colin and their helpers and delicious it was too.

Richard Parker won the bottle of Prosecco. 

34 members played and 47 sat down to dinner   A happy friendly atmosphere was created by all concerned. 

Well done and a big thank you to all who organised and to those who supported this club event.  As one of our members remarked, it was so much more fun than staying at home with his usual bowl of soup and he looked forward to the next one as we all do.
