Croquet Update

The croquet team welcomed Blyth Bridge to Church Farm and immediately changed the sunny afternoon to one of showers.

Home advantage suited us once again and the match ended early when our third pair playing their second pair fought back from trailing throughout the game to close to 5-5 and hoop out 7-5 for a 4-0 team score.

The final is yet to be arranged but will be against Cannock RC.

Croquet Update

A team led by Rob Evan, David Tomkinson, Peter Williams, Andy Kaleta, John Cooper ( a late replacement) and this correspondant travelled to Whitchurch on Friday 11th May.   A close fought match tilted in our favour as the weather grew colder and wetter.    Thankfully Whitchurch had laid on a supurb buffet and did't seem to mind us taking the honours 4-2.

Croquet round 2 victory

On a cloudy evening of 27th June the croquet team entertained Stafford Knot at Church Farm Rowton.   Stafford Knot were intrigued by the hoop positions and the lie of the land.    The first two Wellington pairs came from losing positions to sneak 7-6 victories, the next games also went to Wellington and as the rain increased Stafford Knot conceeded in the interest of additional drinking time.    Both teams adjourned to the warmth of the kitchen where Rob and Virginia had prepared refreshments.    Thanks very much Rob.
