GB beat USA 13-8 - The Solomon Trophy

[<<] [>>] by Dave Kibble

The Solomon Trophy has been won by a strong GB team with a day in hand at Bald Head Island, NC, USA.

Captain, Keith Aiton said "the facilities provided for the recent Solomon Trophy at the Bald Head Island Club were truly outstanding. Anyone who has played in the USA is used to excellent hospitality, but they also provided fast lawns (14-15 seconds), a completely smooth consistent surface, and firm hoops - basically the 'holy grail' of top class croquet."
