These included Malcolm Glass and Mike Jamieson (third place on countback), Dave Weston and Tony Horton, Rob Heard and Hugh Willis and John Mant and Dave Sammons.

The trophy itself was won in convincing style by Gilbert and Alan with an accumulated score of 217 points.

Second overall place went to Rob Grove and Roger Wright on 205 points and third. to Clive Davie and Phil Wilkins with 204 points.

Recently the final of the Scratch Cup, which starts in October and concludes in March was won once again by Tony Strong who beat Peter Knighting in the final by four-and-three.

This was the seventh successive win for Strong in this event and that is anew club record.
