Simon Peck, Aaron Hacon and Colin Westney won two games each (although the Kings Head were a player short) before the latter two combined to win the doubles 21-12, 21-14. However they all found Alan Clitheroe in fine form as he once again destroyed all three Hopefuls' players comfortably.

In Division One Hales Eagles had two 7-3 victories over Nutters and Gull. Derek Clark was the man in form scoring a maximum in each match. Against the Nutters' Tom Herne, Clark had to use all his experience to defeat the youngster 13-21, 21-16, 21-17. Mario Iacovazzo scored a brace for the Gull but lost to Clark 17-21, 21-13, 14-21.

Magpies also had two good wins - 7-3 over Nutters and 8-2 over Gull. This time it was Barry Fortune scoring the maximums. Again Iacovazzo scored a brace for the Gull but lost 17-21, 20-22 to Fortune. Doug Cheer and Alf Stubbs assisted Fortune in the Gull match with a brace apiece.
