Sat 8th June, Moira Tournament Manager and reporter: Mick Haytack
On a cold wet day at Moira, nine intrepid players competed in a very entertaining ‘C’ level tournament. Due to another engagement Lesley Leitch was only able to play in the morning but Jenny Biggs made a more than adequate replacement in the afternoon.
After everyone had played seven tightly-fought games two players had six wins. David Brame of Hunstanton Croquet Club beat Ashby’s Julie Boulton 7-5 in a deciding game to take home the trophy. Sandra Cornes with five wins was third and Izzy Poyntz finished fourth. The other players, who all managed at least one win, were Sue I’Anson, Susan Boxell, Sarah Brame and the previously mentioned Lesley and Jenny. The standard of play was exceptionally good for a ‘C’ level event and all the participants are to be congratulated for braving the difficult conditions and making this a very enjoyable event.
