Lewis and Mills in Sidmouth Finals
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.
