Croquet: Nailsea trio help Somerset to first-ever title
PUBLISHED: 16:56 03 September 2019
Nailsea & District trio James Galpin, Ryan Cabble and Jim Gregory helped Somerset win the Inter-County Golf Croquet Championships for the first time.
Somerset won 10 of their 11 matches at the Sussex County club near Brighton, losing only to Nottinghamshire, as Galpin and Cabble lost just one of their individual singles games.
And Galpin defeated a number of players with significantly higher rankings along the way as Somerset confirmed the strength of croquet in the South West.
*Nailsea & District recently held a C Class competition, with Mary Barnes winning all of her games in block A, as Pam Hendry topped block B.
Barnes then beat Mike Powell, while Martin Walker - in his first year of competitive play - defeated Hendry to set up an exciting final showdown in October.
