Press Report 12th September 2021
The weekend was a culmination of a long journey for Andrew Essex in reaching the County Unbadged Singles final at Bracknell B C coming up against a tough opponent in Colin Carson from the Royal Household and it proved to be one step too far as he went down 21 – 17.
It was a fabulous game to watch and well supported from Desborough and too close to call for much of the match. Well played Andrew.
During the week Desborough welcomed local rivals from Maidenhead Town to Green Lane for the 2nd leg of the Hot Dog Trophy holding a 21 shot cushion from the first encounter. Although the six rinks were shared, with the benefit of the shot cushion from the 1st leg and sterling performances from the rinks skipped by Mark Peachey (once again!!), Mark Essex and Bruce Adams led Desborough to claim the title with ease. Desborough look forward to the renewal in 2022.
Desborough held their End of Season Bash on Saturday which was a combination of bowls followed by a barbecue. The rinks skipped by Andrew Essex and Michael Hobson ended up on equal scores but on countback it was declared that Andrew, Val Wyatt and Peter Braddock were the winners. However on an occasion the result doesn’t matter as the real winner was the game of bowls and everyone enjoyed the food along with the convivial atmosphere.
Press Report 6th September 2021
Desborough’s Finals Weekend was a great success, great weather, great bowls, great food and a good attendance with members enjoying watching many close competitive matches.
The Final of the Men’s Championship Singles was notable in that we believe this was the first time the final had been contested between, not only two brothers but also two twin brothers! – Mark and Andrew Essex.
The match resulted in a win for Mark Essex 21-17.
The Final of the Ladies Championship between Gina Braddock and Jacinta Monteiro saw Gina stage a dramatic comeback from 3-15 down to win 21-16.

Coronavirus Update – January 2021
The current restrictions we all live under in RBWM at present, being classified as Tier “4”, has resulted in a further closure of the Club until at least the 14th February when the Government are scheduled to review the COVID-19 situation.
Unfortunately, with the significant spread of the virus over recent weeks and the projected increases over the next few weeks, it appears extremely unlikely that we shall be able to re-open the Club until sometime in March 2021, at the earliest and even this date appears to be very optimistic.
We will of course keep Members informed as to when we can re-open and assure you all that as soon as we are permitted to do so we will re-open!
