The final of the Secretary's Shield was hosted by York on a bright and breezy day, the last of their season. Play was equally brisk, with Sheffield taking the doubles and one of the morning singles to edge into a 2-1 lead at lunch. They went 3-1 ahead, but then Middlesbrough clawed one back, before Maggie Crossland took Sheffield over the line.
