*** 14 Mar 2020 - Men's County League

On Saturday 14 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.

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

On Tuesday 10 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.
