It was a similar story for our triple 23 – 23 with one end to play, this was taken by Flitwick, and the rink was almost the same, fifteen all after sixteen ends, 19 – 18 up with one end to play but they dropped a three and the match was lost, a consolation for Peter Jones and Terry Regan who 16 – 13

With both of our triples 12 -2 up after eight ends there was no doubt who would win. Ron Williams, Michael Everitt and Terry Regan were almost caught at 13 – 9 after thirteen ends but pulled away and had to be content with an 18 – 10 win. Dave Beckett, Ro Legate and Barry Albon had three fives and a four in their total, their opponents had five singles and a four so there was no doubt about the result, 30 – 9.
