Friendly - Braintree v Witham Mill Lane
On an ideal day for bowling, Braintree Bowling Club hosted their annual friendly match against Witham Mill Lane Bowling Club. As usual, this early season friendly match enabled all players to adjust to the variants of bowling on grass greens and was played with the traditional conviviality that is the basis of friendly club matches.
With home advantage, Braintree Bowling Club’s 5 triple teams finally ran out the winners, taking the honours on three rinks to Witham's victory on the other two, with the overall shots total in favour of Braintree Bowling Club.
Everyone commented on the immaculate condition of the greens at this early part of the season, which is a credit to the band of club volunteers who maintain the bowling greens at Clare Road.
