With relegation a real possibility heading into this fixture Croydon’s men’s team rallied to finish runners-up on the day and elevate themselves to fourth in the division overall. With team members travelling back from Northern Ireland, Brighton, Loughborough and Southampton to compete, it was a real team effort to ensure we avoided the drop.

Peter Chambers rallied to 2nd in the race with Dom Nolan 3rd. Ben Savill was a resurgent 10th. Christophe Dormenval secured his season’s best finish of 17th, with Patrick Lucas 28th. Alex Penfold ran through illness for 38th, he is the club’s lowest points scorer for the season in this league. David White improved to 43rd with Jake English 9 places further back. David Brown kept his Surrey League accutane online scoring run up to 15 races in a row and Glenn Barden sneaked back into the scoring ten after illness at Beckenham.
