22nd April - Goldring retains 5+ Tounament title

Roger Goldring came back from 3-5 down to win four hops in
a row and retain his coveted 5+ 'Red Ball' Tournament title.
This is the first event Roger ever won in croquet and so he revealed that winning it for a second time was all the more special.
Ten players contested this seasons' tournament and a series of very close results told the tale of a generally evenly match field.
It was good to welcome Sylvia Thomson back into the competitive fold after a long absence and Chairman Harry Midgley, taking a break from his AC principal persuite, to support this GC event.
Goldring was undefeated in his block, but only just when it took a match saving clearance from 25 yards at hoop 13 to sneak a last gasp win over Midgley.
Richard Peperell topped the other block despite a loss to Thomson, who along with Dianne Brown, was surprised to end block runners-up and be required to play of for overall their place which Browne won.
The final was a tense and consequently slow paced affair that looked to be in Peperell's pocket until an unfortunate failed jump at hoop 9 pushed Goldring through.
The defending champion converted his 'first shot' advantage at hoop 10 to tie the scores and then some good clearances at 11 turned the game in his favour.
Peperall seemed as delighted for Goldring after the winning shot, as if he had won himself, and it was lovely to see such generosity of good sprit, so in keeping with the traditions of our splendid game.
To the victor the spoils but both finalist duly qualify for the Croquet Association's Center Stage Competition Final at Ashby on 13 September.
