Caversham come up well Short at Blewbury

Captain Charles Briggs was the star of Caversham’s 11-5 defeat at Blewbury in the Short Croquet League on Saturday.

Charles won all four of his matches — including victories over former Caversham scratch player Joe King and a current Caversham star, Brian Jamieson.

There was also one win for Terry Marsh (pictured right) on his debut outing in Short Croquet, but no successes for Chris Barnard or John Wakeford.

Charles said: “Despite a brief downpour and the scoreline we enjoyed a convivial day.”
