Colchester beat Watford 7-0 in the second round of the Longman Cup.
On some very fast Colchester lawns the home side made amends for their defeat by Watford in last season's Longman Cup. In fact, they did it in style winning all the games although four went to time. In lovely sunny conditions the new members to the Colchester team played some reliable, if not always over exciting, croquet and used their knowledge of the fast lawns to good effect. The match was played in an excellent spirit throughout.
