Seems like it was only yesterday when we were starting the 2019 Season but yesterday saw the last Friendly Fixture played at home which was against Desborough our local team. Unfortunately, Desborough were only able to field 4 rinks so 1 rink was made entirely of Thicket Players who just played for fun.
The result was a win for Thicket 83 73
Thicket's highest winning Rink was Skipped by Kevin Scrace with Mike Cooper Bridget Thrift and Steve Isaac. They picked up a 4 on the third end and never really looked back and after picking up a 5 on the 13th end went on to win by 9 shots 25 16
