[<<] [>>] by Tony Elliott at Ealing
1 Jul 2017 (AC - Longman Cup)

Current holders Enfield started their 2017 Longman Cup campaign with a visit to Ealing on 1st July, and came away with the narrowest of victories, by 4 games to 3. Scores (Enfield names first):

David Frost (4.5) and John Street (8) beat Colin McKenzie (6) and Michael Sherratt (18) 16-14 (T).
Tony Elliott (6) lost to David Graham (16) 7-26.
Michael Broadway (14) beat Simon Tuke (4.5) 26-13.

David Frost lost to Simon Tuke 21-26.
Tony Elliott beat Colin McKenzie 26-16.
John Street lost to David Graham 16-26.
Michael Broadway beat Michael Sherratt 26-7.

Top honours for the day went to two of the higher handicapped players, Michael Broadway and David Graham, who each won both of their singles matches convincingly; David celebrated with a handicap reduction. The other two singles matches, played without the need for bisques, finished 1-1, so in retrospect, the match turned on Enfield's narrow (+2 on time) win in the morning doubles. A fine day's croquet, played in pleasant weather on good lawns at Ealing.
