The winning rinks were E Cox, A Smith and A Evans 20-15 and J Livings, M Chipperfield and P Edmonds 17-16. The B team’s early season form deserted them as they lost away to Morchard Bishop by 21-49.

The mixed team also suffered a defeat away at Phear Park losing by 58-80. The only winning rink was G Smith, E Cox, S Kury and D Evans 21-19.
