CROQUET HANDICAP LEAGUE
SOUTHPORT 4 – BOWDON FIRS 3
Southport Handicap League team with acting captain Carol Lewis, Brian Lewis, Anne Mitchell and Barbara Haslam, were home to Bowdon Firs on Sunday. It was very hot on the sheltered lawns of Victoria Park, but Carol and Anne made an excellent partnership to win the morning doubles game and, in her singles game Barbara Haslam demolished her opponent with ease. Brian Lewis also managed a win, just scraping through his game on time and giving a score of 3-0 at lunch. In the afternoon Carol continued her good form, winning quickly against Bowdon’s Chris Irwin, who only managed to achieve three match hoops in the game. Despite a spirited come-back by Bowden, Southport managed to hold on and the end score was Southport 4, Bowdon 3.
