Shield back in Counties hands
During the sweltering Anniversary Weekend, members of the Counties-Manukau Association Croquet team were competing at the annual Upper North Island Teams Event. And they won!
Two days, five, two and a half hour singles games against their opposition from Northland, Auckland, Waikato-King Country, Bay of Plenty and Thames Valley, and they came home with the shield! This region has won it six times before, but Bay of Plenty have held it for the last three years—until now!
The team of four (one from each level) were: Roger Adamson and Caroll Sanford (Howick Club) and Norm Beck and Brendon Neilson from Pukekohe Club.
A great result for them all.
Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
