CA vs. Scottish Croquet Association

[<<] [>>] by James Hawkins at Southport & Birkdale
3rd September 2000 (International)

An evenly poised event saw Scotland's rising newcomer Jonathan Kirby suffer the ultimate misfortune. In a peg-peg-peg-peg finish, Bob Burnett (England) pegged out a single ball, leaving Kirby a grievous rush peg-out of John Haslam's ball to lose by two. Despite this early setback, Scotland regained control to retain the trophy. The series stands at 12-11 in England's favour.
