Nottingham through to sem-final of Secretary's Shield

Nottingham beat Ashby 7-0 to reach the semi-finals of the Secretary's Shield in the roasting heat of Sunday, 27th May.

Omied Hallam and Clive Goode played together in doubles, against Mike Haytack and Richard Sandville, winning comfortably within time.  Meanwhile in the morning, Dan Greenaway beat Derek Buxton and Dave Gunn beat Mike O'Brian, who had very little experience of Association Croquet.  In the afternoon, players wilted, but all four singles finished in our favour.
