We beat Ryde 4-0 in the Southern Croquet AC League We played the set of four singles first as we were late starting with a view to playing shortened games for the last three games in the afternoon. Dave Spicer and Ian Lowdon won reasonably comfortably; Nick Goodwin and I had close games. But we all won and Ryde were not bothered about playing the other games given how cold it was..
We are now eligible to enter the Secretary's Shield next year which I think is a first for the club. This is a knockout between the 9 area winners in England.
