It is with great sadness that Don passed away this morning (29/4/16). He was a formidable bowler in his time who stayed at one club Sanguine, throughout his bowling life.

RIP Terry Matthews 

It is with great sadness that after a long battle with cancer Terry passed away peacefully this morning (24/3/16). 

Terry was an excellent bowler who played for many clubs including Outwood Common, East Hanningfield and Stonyhill. He also played for Essex County at all levels. He was also an international umpire and served on the league, county and ESMBA committees in many positions. 

Terry will be sorely missed. Our thoughts and condolences go to Carol and his family at this time. Funeral details will be given as soon as possible

Peggy Patterson  R.I.P

It is with great sadness that Peggy Patterson passed away 29/01/16 after not recovering from a recent stroke. Peggy loved her bowling and represented FOE in many competitions and matches and also attended the annual tours. She played for clubs in Essex before moving to Clacton where she continued her bowling.

"A" Team Results - See Link,    Results

                                                     

At the last ESMBA meeting it was decided to clarify certain ICC rules.

1. The half hour roll up before matches has been scrapped and instead each team will have two up and two down before each session. There will be no practice on the day of the game by either team.

2. Counties proposing to play a newly registered member , or one who has been registered with them for less that two years, must confirm residency. The ESMBA define proof of residency as being on the electoral roll or confirming council tax payment

                                                                            

Few Changes on the Website

First of all The Premier ICC Rinks Final is now on the 5th March 2016, the draw for the finals will be announced in December.

I have placed 2 links under competitions  page regards the ESMBA Open Fours Competition and the ESMBA/TLH National Short Mat Top Club (The ESMBA/TLH event you are required to go through heats)

Premier ICC Results are under the Team Manager Tab and we thank Mitchell Young for providing the report.

Essex Championships/ National Events 2015-16

Dear Members
Closing date for entering all the Essex Championship/National events is getting ever closer 8th November, if you wish to enter one of the events, Fours, Triples, Pairs, Singles The entry form should be on your clubs Noticeboard, alternatively speak to your secretary or you could go to the Essex website where the Essex Championship/ National forms are located. 

If you wish to enter the Fours, Triples, or Pairs and looking for a team speak to Anthony and he will do his best to find you a team.

The forms do not need to be in at the moment but as long as they are with Anthony on the 8th November. The longer they are on your clubs noticeboard the better chance of additional entries.

Essex County Team Captains 

The new county team captains chosen by the team manager Adam Sultana for 2015/16 season will be Sammy Lambert for the Premier team and Rob Wade for the "A" team. We have two great captains for the up and coming season , Sammy  our president who has wealth of experience and knowledge behind him and Rob who is relativity newish to Essex County but has a great passion for the game, both captains are well respected and i am sure they will work well with the Team Manager to try and bring the best out of Essex.
