Sheffield CC beat Hampstead Heath in the Secretary's Shield. Saturday 10th July 2021

After a dramatic start to the day and a hasty relocation to the neutral venue of Leicester a good day's croquet was enjoyed by both teams, especially Sheffield.
At lunch Sheffield were ahead by 2 games to 1. After lunch it looked as though Hampstead Heath were going to take the win - the score was 2 all, and in the deciding match time had gone with Sheffield behind and one turn left. An unfortunate fault on a take off croquet stroke by Hampstead Heath let Eugene Chang in to come from behind to peg out.
