Bowdon lose to Fylde in NWF Short League, 11th June

Bowdon’s Short croquet team in the North West Federation League suffered another defeat this season, at home to Fylde on an extremely hot Sunday 11th June. The final score was 4 – 12 to Fylde. Bowdon’s team was:

Fylde’s team was:

Lee Hartley 3 Peels, Phil Snowdon 2.5, Jan Theakstone 3 and Betty Bates 3.

Results were as follows:

Cas beat Phil, and lost to Lee, Jan and Betty

Louise lost to Phil, Lee, Jan and Betty

John beat Betty and Ian and lost to Lee and Jan

Gordon beat Betty and lost to Lee, Phil and Jan

Cas blames the heat. I suppose that a Blackpool located team might be more used to seaside-style sunshine than Bowdon players. Well that is one explanation. Perhaps there should be sauna based training sessions before future matches.
