Carpet Bowls - December 2021

Braintree's Carpet Bowlers ended a disjointed 2021 with an encouraging 3-1 home friendly win over Notley Green, reversing the score line from the away fixture in early November.  Played over nine ends, the final shot score was an impressive 49-25.  Newcomer Ron Norton joined Peter Stow in the opening pairs and ran away 22-7 winners.  On the other mat, the four of Freda Laidlaw, Sandra Mayne, Joan Day and David Grice won 12-1, allowing their opponents one point on the last end.  Keith Hunter and John Laidlaw, now fighting fit again, were most impressive in their 14-1 victory.  The second four of Elaine Norton, Linda Butcher, Tony Day and Andy Wade were much better value than their 1-17 defeat might suggest. 

With no league action in sight, Braintree have two friendlies against Stisted booked early in the New Year.  More may follow, Covid permitting.
