Stony Stratford Croquet Club are through to the EACF semi-finals.
After a hard-fought match with Leighton Buzzard on 19 Aug, winning 10 – 8 this means we have pipped Watford for the top spot. We had the same points as them but beat them in the head to head, which now means we go through.
Congratulations to the team of Lesley, John Burridge, Robert and Alex who, not only were victorious but, played in the most appalling conditions of wind and rain. This meant the match was very testing after the lovely warm and sunny weather of the past few weeks.
Obviously other members have played in earlier matches, so well done to them too. Also a special mention must go to Robert who has played in all five matches.
The semi-final is on Sunday 11 September at Watford, so we will be needing to select a team very shortly, hopefully with a view to going on to the Final at Ipswich in October.
“It’s a few years since we headed the Western area group, so well done everyone and it shows what a wealth of steady players we have in the club.”
