DHBA Lose Out in 2nd Colchester Friendly:
The Dengie Hundred BA played its 2nd friendly of the 2019/20 indoor season against Colchester Indoor BC on Saturday 14th March, over 6 mixed triples and as usual Burnham players were well represented in the DHBA team. Having beat Colchester in the 1st friendly a number of weeks ago DHBA were looking to do the double but alas it was not to be as Colchester fielded a good side so managed to win on 5 of the 6 triples. The final score was 113/76 to Colchester.
BHBC's 'A' Team Have Close Indoor/Outdoor Game:
Burnham Hillside's 'A' team played it penultimate league game of the Jacks indoor/outdoor for the 2019/20 season on Saturday 7th March. It was a game against an excellent side from Danbury BC. Over the two rinks both clubs took a good lead on one of the rinks each but as the games progressed both the losing rinks came back until going in to the last ends Danbury were leading overall by 3 shots so Burnham were looking for 4 shots to take at least 4 of the available 6 league points. However, despite their valiant efforts, Danbury won the last end on both rinks with final rinks scores being 19/18 to Burnham and 19/14 to Danbury, so it was Danbury who took the 4 league points with 2 going to Burnham.
What a Big improvement the new carpet tiles make!
