The score does not reflect the closeness of most of the games with several being won by a determined Hunstanton team when the Colchester players looked almost home. The accuracy of Charles Ostler and John Andrews was evident throughout the match as was that of John Reddish who earned himself a handicap reduction. None of the games went to time.
Thanks are especially due to Pat Saddington and Pam Bishop for doing the catering.
