11a - INTER-COUNTY GAMES - 2016/17

(Created 13/8/16)

Our 3 county teams are known as Premier, A and B (formerly A, B and C)

The Premier plays in the ESMBA ICC and the A & B teams play in the NESMBA league

 

ESMBA ICC RINKS FINALS - 28/1/17 (Daventry IBC)  This year the team did not have to take part in any qualification matches (due to a reduced size of entry) so now joined 7 other counties to see who could become the national Rinks A Champions in this, the 2nd year of this new competition. The 8 finalists were organised in two groups of 4 and our team of 16 (4x4) played simultaneously across 4 mats (12 ends) with the results being determined by total shots scored across all rinks. In the initial "round robin", matches were played and won against Dorset (60-30), Suffolk (48-32) and Kent (54-36). The total of 162 shots clocked were good enough for us to win our group and then to meet Somerset in the Final. This produced a very decisive 55-18 victory made all the sweeter as it was Somerset who had denied us a place in last years final by beating us by 44-37. Our team now becomes the second county to have their name on the handsome new trophy - a great end to a tiring day. Well done the "puddings".  

 

COUNTY TEAMS PRACTICE DAY - (Sep 17 - Galtres Centre) (Details from Jill Newsome) We began at 9.30 with 60 players turning up to take part (the majority of this years county player pool + some new faces). 8 mats were needed to cater for this excellent turnout and in the morning session everyone had 3 games (7 Rinks and 1 Pair). After each game the players swapped around and played in different positions on different mats with different people. After a lunch break we then had another 2 sessions.  For each individual taking part scores were accumulated over the whole day and prizes were awarded to the top man (Derek Beardsley) and the top lady (Doreen Sorley). Barry Simmonite had the honour of winning the 'booby' prize. Thanks go once again to Jill Newsome for organising the day and to Arthur J and Dennis J for setting the mats out. It was great to see a lot of 'new' faces and the county coming together as it should - it was fun and it was friendly. The cost was 3 per head to cover costs and we finished about 2.45. We responded to comments made last year that it was a bit tiring as play is continuous and therefore we cut the day by two games although we slightly extended the sessions. The Premier and 'A' team players left looking forward to their first match the following day whilst the 'B' team will have to wait until October 23rd for their first.

 

ICC RINKS competition - (Sept 10/11). Due to West Midlands dropping out, our team have not had to play any Preliminary games but progress straight to the FINALS (along with Northants) at the end of January (see above)
