ASCL - Bressingham 2, Parrot & Punchbowl 3

The team bowed out of the Plate competition after a dogged scrap.  Some good play from Russ and Pat brought it level at 2-2, so a deciding game had to be played, which unfortunately went to the visitors.  Players also got wet as the rain persisted for a time.Others that played were, Les, Diane, Liz and Mick.  Scorecard may follow?

Bob Carter Centre 3, Bressingham Flyers 2 (53-46)

Weather - warm, dry then cooler.Lindsay and I watched the triples then had to leave.  Liz/Mick/Pat led 8-1 but agonisingly lost out by one point in the end.  Darren and Dan's excellent 13-5 win in the pairs was in vain.  It was the same result as last season.Scorecard unavailable at present.  Next match is the Plate 2nd Round against Bob Carter Leisure at home.

Diss-Waveney 2, Bressingham Flyers 3 (agg 6-4)

Myself, Pat, Darren, Les, Cyril, Diane and Dan played in the return leg of this friendly match.  Some very close games.  It was Dan that provided a perfect shot at the end that won the match for us.  Strangely, only two of the Diss team were in the bar afterwards.  No scorecard.Other news - Darren teamed up with Bob and James Urquart at the Nine Boules Triples at St. Faiths and finished in sec

Make Cheques Payable To .......

Can you all remember that when entering competitions and events DIRECTLY organised by the League Co-Ordinator on behalf of the league, that you make registration cheques payable to ''Suffolk Coastal Petanque Alliance'' and not the League Co-Ordinator himself.Have recently had some cheques rejected by the League's Bank as they were made out incorrectly.

Norwich Diamonds 2, Bressingham Flyers 3

Weather - dry.  Fleeces were needed soon after the start.The terrain was very difficult.  If you could point in within two foot it was considered good.  The match itself was a strange one.  One of our players didn't show - luckily Diane (our super-sub) was there to step in at the last moment for us.  I am still not quite sure how we won this match (much to talk about).  An excellent win.Obvi

Yarmouth Bloaters 3, Bressingham Flyers 2

Weather - nice summers evening.No points lost as it was only a friendly.A very enjoyable match with Les notching up two wins.  One of the best terrains I have played on.  It's a shame I didn't get to play on the hilly bit.  Think I only messed up one end.  Superb food after the game.Next match Thursday evening - Norwich Diamonds away.

Bressingham Flyers 4, BC Sports 1

Weather - Quite a nice evening but floodlights still needed near the end.  Attendance - 3.Parity in the triples led to an interesting round in the pairs.  It was pretty even for a some time in all the games when suddenly Pat/Darren sprinted ahead to clinch victory exactly the same time as Les/Luke won theirs. Soon after, Liz/Mick made it 4-1 with some accurate pointing just when it was needed.

ASCL - Bressingham 1, Gt. Finborough 3

Weather - turned out nice.  Attendance 2 (and a puppy).Russ and Pat were the only winners for us on the night.  They also had a scenario where they had to play alternately (like bowls) because of the very odd equidistant ruling.  It is a complicated rule that confuses the hell out of everybody (especially new players).  It should be, if you can't beat your opponents boule, the same team should

Wanderers SF Wombats 3, Bressingham Flyers 2

Weather - nice eveningYou either win or lose in this league - no draws or bonus points as in cricket or rugby.  The overall points tally is just a multiple of the wins column.  so awarding say, 57½ points for a win would make no difference.  Who is in favour of 3 points for a win and 1 for a 3-2 loss (bonus point)?  I have had mixed reviews so far.  Please leave a comment.

ASCL - Bressingham 3, Crettingham Bell 1

A much welcomed win - so 3 points from a possible 6 so far.Last weeks result - Framsden 3, Bressingham 1 (no other official info).

Bressingham 2, The Mutton 3

Weather - rain during first half of matches and not very warm either.  Attendance - 4Fine wins for Russ/Mike/Jenny in the triples and Mike/Jenny again in the pairs set up a thrilling decider in which Les/Diane (who were called in at the last moment) were finally overcome 13-10.  Good effort all round though.Thank you to those that came to support and help afterwards with teas and coffees.  Also

Amelia Island Boules Club, Team of the Week

News4Jax did a nice report on the Fernandina Beach Club (Jan 28, 2015)

Gauloises 4, Bressingham Flyers 1

Weather - no wind, dry but on the cold side.Some success in the triples (one win, one near miss), but were blown to bits in the pairs.  Our game finished abruptly (Mike and I) when our opponents pointed in for an easy SIX (all of their boules were within six inches of the jack)!No match next week.Other News - Les, Mick and Liz represented Bressingham in the first APA Regional Qualifier at the Bob

Bressingham Flyers 4, Wanderers SF Wildcats 1

Honours even in our first group match of 2015. Our hosts laid on plenty of tasty food and hot drinks. Good weather too. Diane and Mel came along to support.Wins for Pat/Russ, Les/Russ (13-4). Losses for Dave/Les, Dave/Pat.

Bloomers finish in style

Bloomers 3, The Hunters 0 (39-23)A terrific way to finish the winter league season. Darren (who supplied the scorecard) came back from a 10-2 deficit in the singles to defeat Paul Goodwin. Good wins also (no pun intended) in the other two games. Bloomers finish one point ahead of Oddballs (the division was pretty tight in the end).
