The climax to the season with the title up for grabs saw first play second. A strong Howard 2 team needed a unlikely but possible big win to overhall Howard 1 and become champions for the first time but it wasn't to be as the reigning champions produced a narrow 6, 4 victory to retain the crown.
Luton 1 finished the campaign in third after a 9, 1 drubbing of their second string who could only field two players. Will Wrapson defeating Mad Mark Keefe in four, for their lone point. Martin Hewett and Russell Bates strolled to two wins each.
Sturdee 1, runners up last year, ended in fourth and would obviously had finished higher if injuries hadn't prevented them . Simon Forest ended a fantastic season in style with another maximum against Howard 4.
Tony Bull almost producing a shock win, Forest eventually winning in five. Kelvin Brown has had a mixed bag this season, and gave Richard Carden a fright! before finally succumbing in five.
Howard 3's difficult season ended with a 8, 2 loss over Chatham Ark Royal. Scarlet O'neil and the unpredictable Charlie Cook overcame reserve Shev Mcdonald. Stuart Fritter and a rejuvinated Harry Jones went undefeated for Chatham.
