Pendle Going to Semi-Finals of Murphy Shield.
A dull, warm day with occasional drizzle welcomed the quarter final match against Belay Hall in the national Golf Croquet Murphy Shield. The lawns were in good condition and thanks go to Peter Dewhurst and Will Drake for all their help in preparing for the event.
Belsay Hall team arrived after a good journey from the north east. Christine Wood (3) captained the team and she was supported by Belsay Hall Chairman David Millner (3), Derek Johnson (3) and Brenda Johnson(8). Pendle again were represented by the winning team from the Ripon Spa match of Libby Dixon(2), Keith Terry (3), Paul Dowdall (3) and Will Drake (6).
At lunch Pendle had a commanding lead of 3 games to nil with many of the games going to 7/6. The day ended with a resounding win of 6 games to 1. The match was played in great spirit and Pendle made new friends. The Belsay Hall team left after a full afternoon tea for their journey home.
