Two Harrogate Union contestants, Derek Helme and Graham Reed, tied on 38 points with victory going to the former on back-nine countback (17 to 16).

Four players returned 37 points, and again countback was called into play.

Kit Chapman (East Riding) took third ahead of David Crossley (York), with a third Harrogate Union competitor Ian Smith fifth and Tom Nutman (York) sixth.

In the team event, where a union’s best three scores counted, Harrogate, not surprisingly, emerged triumphant thanks to Helme, Reed and Smith with 113.

York (Crossley, Nutman and Bill Allen) were runners-up on 110 and Leeds (David Long, Stanley Fingret and James Denton) took third on 102 points on countback from East Riding’s Kit Chapman, John Deeming and Robert Megginson.
