Match Report

Tue 22 Aug 2017 - SWF Golf Croquet League                    (Played at Cornwall CC)

Cornwall Rosevear v Barnstaple

Final Score: Cornwall Rosevear 15½    Barnstaple 4½

The Rosevear Team (playing at home) consisted of Fiona Russell, Ron George, Pam George, Barrel Edwards, Tanis Boxall, Peter Dexter, Stephen Read and Bob Cash.

A lovely fine day for the re-programmed match with a good victory for the last game of the season for Rosevear, beating Barnstaple who were possible League winners this year.

The lawns were in lovely condition despite the recent changeable weather.

The doubles score was 2 points for each team and then gradually Cornwall Rosevear pulled ahead with the singles matches (despite playing against 5 of Barnstaple's team who had handicaps of 10), winning 13 of the 16 games.

An outstanding performance by Peter Dexter is worth mentioning as he won 3 singles and 1 doubles matches despite giving away 17 free turns.

A good tea was provided by the Rosevear players, and an enjoyable day was had by all.

Our thanks to Ron George for refereeing.
