Chester had another busy week’s play in four away matches.
On Tuesday, 11 July, ten players went to Craig-y-Don at Llandudno for the annual friendly fixture between the two sides. There were many close games during the day but in the end Chester went down in what proved to be a generally tight contest. The club is now looking foward to staging a return match at home in September.
On the following day, Wednesday, 12 July, the Chester Centurions team travelled to Earby to face Pendle Tykes in the North West Level Play Golf Croquet league. The team of David Crawford (captain), Chris Slater and Trevor Farrell enjoyed a good day’s play beating the opposing Pendle team 12 – 6.
At the weekend, another team of Jerry Guest, David Boyd and John Dawson tried hard but lost all their games in the North West Advanced B Level league in an away match against Fylde on Saturday, 15 July.
On the following day, Sunday, 16 July, Chris Thomas (captain), Jayne Taylor, Maureen Ivens and Janet Jackson won their North West golf handicap match 10 – 8 at Bury, enjoying a good humoured match in the summer sunshine.
