In the 320 section Mike Hancock, this year partnered by Malcolm Roberts, narrowly missed out on a successful defence of his title, being pipped by Alex Richardson and Steve Emmerton; these pairings having been part of a three way tie with Railton Hyde and Robert Taylor going into the last round.
Dave Price and Paul Clifford looked well placed to defend their 220 title, going into the last round with a 1½ point lead. However defeat for both players allowed Jacob Cartlidge and Dominic Taylor to sneak into first place.
Note on the running of the 220 section: Inspection of the results will show that rounds one and three combined to give two complete matches for each pairing, as did rounds two and four. This completed a round robin. Round five necessarily involved a rematch.
