 On June 15, Frys welcomed Long Ashton to Somerdale in the eighth game of the league season. The home side  took the early lead. Frys continued to lead with rink 3 pulling away. Rinks 1 and 2 remained close. 

As the game reached its closing stages, Long Ashton pulled themselves back into the game. Rink 2 was in Long Ashton's favour, but Frys turned in it back and with Long Ashton taking 1 on the final end, the rink ended in a draw. Long Ashton pulled back on rink 3 but Frys still won the rink, closing the game right up. With rink 3 yet to finish, Long Ashton were 4 down on the match. Despite a good effort from the visitors, they could only pick up 3 shots which saw them win the rink, but Frys took the overall win 52-51 with 7 points from the night. Scores: Rink 1: 19-21; Rink 2: 14-14; Rink 3: 19-16; Frys 52-51 Long Ashton (7-3). Friday 9th June:

The first round of the City and County of Bristol Clarence Davey Cup was held  on Friday June 9 when Frys hosted St Anne's Park. St Anne's held the lead through the halfway point, thanks to rink 3 pulling out a lead. Frys pulled themselves back into the game with the overall lead changing frequently. With 3 ends left to complete, Frys held a 5 shot lead, but with rink 2 finding themselves 5 shots down, the last 2 ends were looking nervy. Frys skip had other ideas with his last bowl on their penultimate end, playing positive into the shot bowls and deflecting onto the jack, Frys picked up 2 crucial shots giving them a 7 shot lead with 2 ends left. Rink 4 increased that lead to 8 which all but secured the game with a final score of 84-78, seeing Frys into the next round. Scores: Rink 1: 23-14; Rink 2: 25-24; Rink 3: 14-29; Rink 4: 22-11; Frys 84-78 St Anne's Park.
