Sidmouth croquet players land Mr Seagull trophy with win over Budleigh
Sidmouth’s Croquet Team had its second friendly match against Budleigh this year, writes Pam Bowrah.
The match was contested for the prized possession of a trophy known as ‘a seagull’ made by Chris Donovan of the Budleigh Croquet Club.
This is always a popular match and this years was no exception.
Sixteen games were played in all. Budleigh brought some of their top players in an effort to retain Mr Seagull.
