England were the overall winners (loud cheers from England supporters) of the tournament at Carrickmines Croquet Club, in Dublin. Wales were ranked fourth in this event (boos from Welsh supporters), but defied the predictions by finishing a creditable second (loud, and tuneful, cheers from Welsh supporters)!
England, with Bowdon’s David Maugham as Captain, beat Ireland 4 – 0 and Scotland 3 – 1.
Wales, with Bowdon’s Angharrad in the team, beat Ireland 3 – 1 but lost to Scotland 2 – 3.
Now the result for which you are waiting. England and Wales drew 2 – 2. So England win overall with 9 wins and 3 losses, whilst Wales had 7 wins and 6 losses.
Angharrad won all 3 of her matches, and David Maugham won 2 and lost 1 of his matches. Well done both of you.
