Home and Away Against Belsay

Saturday 23 July saw both eh first and second teams play Belsay in the Croquet North League Division 1 and 2.

The first team of Andrew and Roger Carpenter, Nigel Martin, and Tony McCann played at Chester-le-Street running our comfortable winners 12-6.

The second team of Derek Barron, George Cansino, and Richard and Kathleen Penrose had a much tougher task on much slower lawns at Belsay, but came out honours even with a 9-9 draw.

In both cases the weather stayed fine and warm, though everyone was much relieved that the record heatwave in the week before was well in the past.

The second team has now completed it’s programme with 1 win, 1 draw and 3 defeats. The second team still has one match to play, which will be away to Alnmouth on Thursday 4 August.
