Bowdon Bullets beat Bury 9-7 in the CNW Short League on Sunday 28th April

Our team for the second round of the Short League against Bury was:
Brian Medley (2p), Liz Webb (3), Gordon Hennel (7) and David Beddy (7).

The day started cold and wet but got much sunnier as it wore on. And our croquet followed suit: having been 3-1 down after the first set of matches we clawed back to level pegging by lunchtime and edged ahead in the afternoon. David Beddy acquitted himself very well on his first outing for the club but the star of the show was Liz Webb who won all her games. So we will not make fun of her for forgetting the rules about when a ball is pegged out.

The full scores were:
Brian (2p) lost to Chris Williamson (6) by 0-14; beat Vi Richards (7) by 12-10; beat Richard Leach (3.5); beat Tony Philips (1).
Liz (3) beat Vi (7) by 10-8; beat Chris (6) by 14-11; beat Tony (1) by 14-13; beat Richard (3.5) by 12-8.
David (7) lost to Tony (1) by 11-12; beat Richard (3.5) by 14-2; lost to Vi (7) by 6-14; lost to Chris (6) by 8-14.
Gordon (7) lost to Richard (3.5) by 5-14; lost to Tony (1) by 8-14; beat Chris (6) by 9-8; lost to Vi (7) by 6-14.
