Ladies Top Club - May 2016
Braintree & Witham Times - May 2016
Ladies Top Club
With the new outdoor season in its early weeks, the ladies of Braintree Bowling Club, hosted a very strong Ladies team from West Mersey Bowling Club in the County Top Club Competition. This competition comprised of a Singles, Pairs, Triple and Fours match, which ended in 2 home rinks winning in the Pairs and Triples, but unfortunately, the Singles and Fours teams lost their respective matches, resulting in an overall shots victory for the visiting West Mersey Club who will now go onto the second round of this County competition.
The Home teams were as follows:
Singles - Donna Law
Pairs: Rita Dodds and Roni Taylor
Triples: Danielle Gibbons, Olive Hawkins and Gill Costin
Fours - Sandra Mayne, Freda Laidlaw, Linda Butcher and Jean Baxter.
Every team member enjoyed this annual Ladies County competition and the team captains in turn praised both teams for their sporting conviviality. It was also noted that West Mersea Ladies had won the North West Essex Ladies League last season, which showed the true worth of the Braintree ladies results against such a strong County club.
