LONGMAN CUP 2019, second round
Chester vs Bowdon match report
Chester and Bowdon played their match in the second round of the 2019 Longman Cup tournament on Friday 7th June at Chester, both clubs having a bye in the first round. Heavy rain was forecast for the afternoon so it was agreed to play the four singles games in the morning. The forecast was correct and the rain duly started at lunchtime, although by then Chester had a 4 - 0 lead. Despite this it was decided to try to complete the match in full ...'we are here to play croquet after all!'... but Bowdon's fortunes did not improved with the conditions and they were unable to reduce the deficit.
