In the other games B Wolters and P Williams beat R Thomas and G Ireland with a +6 and B Page, T Baker and S Burnell-Jones beat J Kennett, M Hollebone and M Cannon with a +5.

The runners up also out of the hat were D O'Donnell, C McTagget and M Hammond with a 11-10 win over R Trenchard, Snow and P Swan.

M Hollebone, D Leadbeater and J Pie had a +7 win over W Goward, N Bell and P Anderson.

DESPITE the weather our pennant players got some practice with our top grade playing against our fives. Our sevens had a game against each other.

The twos were too good for the fives wining all three games. In the other game N Savage, R Trenchard, B Craig and D Hammond had a +10 win over G Williams, T Baker, B Kershaw and S Burnell-Jones. Lucky Mick was in the defeated team but moved aside to let other players get some practice. Maybe the result could have been different if Mick played. A sausage sizzle was enjoyed by all after the games.
