Usually a trip to Brighton to play Preston IBC usually proves difficult but this time is was a case of so near but so far as Desborough went down by only two shots, 132-130. However the Maidenhead side won on 4 of the 7 rinks and after a threat of a referendum, the Captains agreed on a technical draw. Winning scorecards came from the rinks came from the rinks skipped by Brian Wright and Paul Winstanley which left those skipped by Barry Gill and Clive Northover to fight for top rink honours and that went to the latter who with Chris Howard, Yoriko Fowler and Paul Patel who won by 14 shots, 24-10.
