Last Friday we played our Federation Fours match at El Cid. After much good bowling from both sides, it ended up with 2 points each. A good win on one rink and a loss on the other.
Well done to Clive English´s rink of M.Cockell, T, Hesketh-Field, and W. Holmes. We now have two remaining games to play. Next week we are at home against Bonalba and our last match will be against Javea Green on their turf. We are the current leaders at the time of writing, with El Cid and Javea Green close behind.

On a warm sunny morning, BBC played host to a strong Javea Green Team. There was fine bowling from both teams.
BBC´s first rink of M:Lawley, B.Cockell,C.Evans and C.English were involved in a closely fought contest against D.Eldon´s rink. Excellent play by BBC in the last five ends eventually resulted in a 19 - 9 victory,
The second rink of M.Cockell, P. Collins, Y.Briden and W.Holmes took an early lead against B.Manser´s rink. However, Javea fought back during the middle phase to give them a comfortable lead. A late recovery from the BBC rink was not enough to prevent Javea running out victors 24 - 16.
A 2-2- draw means that the BBC´s squad have now taken 9 points from 3 matches and lead the Northern Section at the halfway stage of the Competition.
