Southwick (Brighton) Croquet Club, June 2-5th, 2012 Inter-Counties.
Lancashire remain in top flight despite fielding a weaker team than normal.
Bury members Matt Holmes & Paul Rigge turned out for their county over the Jubilee weekend on the south coast (Matt for the first time).
The campaign started badly with three straight losses, but over the course of the long bank holiday, the team gelled and managed enough wins to crawl up the leader board from the bottom, ending mid-table and beating neighbours, Cheshire, along the way to yet again re-affirm their Division one status.
Next year’s contest will be a cracker – Yorkshire, having been promoted, after finishing second in Div2, will be fair game next May Bank!
