Sandiford Salver…September Advanced Tournament

 

James Death defeated a strong opposition to win the Sandiford Salver at
the Southport Advanced Weekend on 15-16 September.
Death played some fast and elaborate croquet, squeezing ten games into
the two days.  On the way he completed three triple peels, one triple on
his opponent, a quad, a straight quad, and the not-often-seen quintuple
peel on opponent.  Credit must go to Peter Wilson, who managed the event
and succeeded in scheduling enough games to satisfy James’s appetite for
croquet throughout.
John-Paul Moberly made his Southport debut after recently relocating to
the North West, and won six games out of seven to take second place.
Results:
James Death – 10/10
John-Paul Moberly – 6/7
Paul Rigge – 6/8
Alain Giraud – 5/8
Omied Hallam – 4/8
Richard H Smith – 2/6
Liz Wilson – 2/6
Dave Gunn – 2/7
James Hawkins – 2/7
Peter Wilson – 2/7
Derek Knight – 1/6
Dennis Scarr – 1/6
