The Dengie Hundred Bowling Association played its second 2019/20 winter friendly against the Jacks Centre on Sunday 26th January. The game was over six rinks and, as always, there were a reasonable number of Burnham players taking part, and not only for the DHBA but also the Jacks Centre team. Being a local game most of the players knew each other so there was good congenial conversation taking place. As for the play there were mixed results across the six rinks but in general the DHBA lead most of the way through overall and in the end came away with a win of 128/110. Well done to the DHBA and many thanks to all the Burnham players who took part on both sides.
BHBC's Indoor/Outdoor 'A' Team Have Good Win:
Burnham Hillside's 'A' team played in an indoor/outdoor league game on Saturday 4th January. Their opponents were Rayleigh BC. The two rinks had mixed fortunes for the Burnham sides through the game with one rink starting well but with Rayleigh fighting back and on the other rink Burnham were down but then they came back. In the end though Burnham were triumphant on both rinks with wins of 17/12 and 22/20 and therefore took all 6 league points.
