The pairs final was between Kevin McCarthy, who played with Ian Manchester, against Lilian and Terry Hurley-Smith.

After what had been a fairly close start to the contest, Lilian and Terry pulled away, establishing a good lead, and it all ended with Kevin and Ian being unable to catch them.

After a break for the annual general meeting of the winter section of the club, the singles final was then played between Kevin McCarthy and Lilian Hurley-Smith.

Lilian started strongly and kept the lead throughout the game.

Going into the final end the score was 13-12 to Lilian. Kevin got his four woods close to the jack and Lilian was unable to move them, resulting in a last end success for Kevin, who took the overall honours by 16 shots to 13.

The cups were presented to the winners and runners-up by the club president Graham Thomas.
