Match Report

Sat & Sun 11 & 12 Oct 2008

Saturday and Sunday October 11th & 12th saw our annual end of season friendly match against Nailsea.

On Saturday 10 games Golf croquet were played. Nailsea fielding a very strong team came out the winners 6 games to 4.

On Sunday under perfect weather (unusual for this year) Cornwall's association croquet team were hoping to redress the balance, but with some inspired play by the Nailsea team Cornwall went down 4 games to 8, so Nailsea are taking the Trophy home.

Final score:  Nailsea 14, Cornwall 8
