SOUTHPORT V DOWLISH WAKE ( National Inter Club Golf Croquet Championship played at Edgbaston )

The semi final Southport V Dowlish Wake played at Edgbaston.

The team travelled down on the Monday afternoon and stayed at the travel lodge for a rest before the game on Tuesday 0930 start.

Both teams arrived early to get the game under way, even at 0930 the weather was extremely hot, all the games were very closely matched and up to lunch time it was even score.

The time was getting on, we were all feeling the effects of the heat and it came down to the last two games. Unfortunatly Southport were not able to win both games so final score 4 – 3 to Dowlish Wake. They now play the Isle of White.

The whole team ( Terry Dunbar, Don Williamson, Mike Armstrong and Sue Wilkie), did very well up against a club that only play golf.
