Today we commenced our programme of matches for the 2019 season. On a wonderful sunny day we were royally entertained by our hosts Staines Bowls Club who are celebrating their Centenary this year.
It was a great afternoon of bowling enjoyed by all, and played in a competitive spirit, but in the relaxed social atmosphere that is a hallmark of these celebratory matches, with many new friends being made. The score was irrelevant although FOEB scored a few more than our hosts. The best performing rink for Staines was Jane Billins, Alan Little, Roy Holdaway and captain Eric Moore who were playing against our Chairman’s rink. FOEB’s best rink was Graham Searle, Pauline Biddlecombe, Jan Hunt and Spencer Kerley. FOEB Captain for the day David Wederell congratulated the club on its historic milestone and wished them a happy and successful season, and a bright future so we could all come back in 2044 for the 125th!
