Longman Cup national AC teams match; Friday 19th May

We played our first round Longman Cup Association Croquet match at home on Friday 19th May in mostly sunny weather.  Our opponents were Woking and we made a solid start in the morning, with Michael Clarke winning his singles match and John Gosden and Julie Tremble winning the doubles.  Both matches went to time and although the winning margins of 7 and 10 hoops sounds comfortable both games were close affairs.  Andrew Fewster struggled against his opponent and was comfortably beaten, making the score at lunch 2-1 to G&G.   

Fortified by a splendid lunch provided by Jan Honeysett, G&G swept the board in the afternoon, winning all four single matches by comfortable margins.  An excellent performance from all four players; now on to the second round.
