Appleton Trophy Report

This year's match between CAI and SCA for the Appleton Trophy (easily the  most handsome trophy on the croquet circuit) was played at the Meadows CC in Edinburgh last weekend. Ireland was the holder but was quickly under pressure as the Scots won all three doubles games on Saturday morning and kept up the pressure during the afternoon, so that at the end of play SCA had a 13 -5 lead. The only  Irish player with something to celebrate was Jane Morrison, who beat her husband, Campbell, in their singles game.
