The 5th July 2013 saw the first UK match for Cabrera LBC. We arranged to play Birstall LBC in Leicester. Billed as Birstall's Revenge, as we won against them last October. 28 Cabrera players, 7 rinks were scheduled to play but due to illness we had to borrow 2 players from neighbouring Rothley BC, Di & Brian's old club. It was a close match but Cabrera managed to win the day by 4 shots.

Birstall made us all very welcome, they provided us with a traditional bowling tea, which everyone enjoyed.

Presentations were made of a framed bowling shirt and a club badges to Birstall. They responded with a beautiful old Lignoid Wood made into a clock and BLBC inscribed Whiskey tumblers for all of our members.

We all went to get changed for the evening entertainment and returned about 8:15. Minibuses were provided to enable those of us who imbibe to not to have any worries about drinking & driving. All of Birstall's members made us very welcome and entertained us. We all had a great evening and are now looking forward to seeing our friends again when they return to Spain in October.

18th July 2014 saw the second away visit to Birstall B.C. They had their revenge this year by beating us, but we will try and recify this when they visit us in October this year.

Birstall put on a splendid traditional bowling tea which was much apreciated.

Most returned later for a night of entertainment with Karaoke, games and and interval with more great food again. A brilliant time, and we are looking forward to their visit to us later this year.
