Lewis and Mills in Sidmouth Finals

June 12th 2005

Ian Lewis and Daniel Mills both spent an enjoyable week of croquet in the seaside surroundings of Sidmouth.

Lewis reached the Final of the B Class event by winning 4 out of his 5 games. In the Final he came up against holder Barbara Young of Bury. In a close match lasting nearly 5 hours Young won by just 2 points.

Mills reached the Final of the A Class event by winning a closely match against David Mumford of Woking. In the best of 3 final he came up against tournament favourite and manager Cliff Jones. The 1st game was won +13 by Jones but in the 2nd game Mills was on the brink of victory but unfortunatley his rush to the peg was wired by a hoop! Jones eventually took the game by just 2 points to seal his victory.
