Cornwall's Rosevear Golf Croquet team played its final fixture of the season on August 16th, at home against Barnstaple. Early murk and damp quickly cleared away, and while the lawns were initially slow, they soon speeded up with the arrival of the sun.
Both Clubs fielded full teams of eight. The morning's play gave little advantage to either side, but Rosevear hit form in the afternoon, with a succession of good wins.
The final result was Cornwall Rosevear 13, Barnstaple 7.
The Teams were:
Cornwall Rosevear - S. Read (handicap 3); D. Forsdick (8); P. Dexter (3); L. Honey (10); P. Schofield (4); E Schofield (7); T. Boxall (10), and B. Edwards (8),
Barnstaple - D. White (5); M.Barraclough (10); S. Jones (4); F. Duncombe (12); J. Duncombe (12); J. Bentley-Jones (10); A. White (10); V. Masterson (10).
