Hamptworth Golf & Country Club, 6th-10th September 2013.
Bury’s Matt Holmes, regains his form and storms the Croquet Associations fourth ‘Eight’ upon his first invitation. Having been promoted into the Treasurer’s Tankard eight, (format all play all – twice), Matt only dropped a single game in the first round and continued to pile the pressure onto the other players with multiple peeling turns in the second round, winning the this Top National Throphy well clear of the field with a day to spare!
Bury’s man of the year again? – Brilliant display from him & must surely place him near the top of the MacRob development squad.
In the ‘Eight’ above – the Spencer Ell at Nottingham, Paul Rigge had a torrid time as game after game got away from him without him even having a sniff. Paul not getting first win until the fourth day!
These results mean the Matt now is the Bury Croquet Club’s top player, being twenty odd places above Paul on the ranking database as the season draws to a close.
