With victories against both The News (Dave Baxter) and Aray (Ken Turvet), Kackanders (Paul Cooke) made sure of retaining the Victory triples division two trophy.

They had to endure some nervy moments along the way as Aray, who have gone through the season without getting a point, cut back an 11-shot lead to just four at the bell.

In the Tuesday League, Em’N’Ems (Peter Leggett) lost the chance to clinch the trophy as they conceded five shots in the final two ends to lose by three shots to City (Geoff Matthews),

Leaders Post Office (Trevor Moore) had their hopes dented when they lost by 10 shots to the John Farrar-skipped Captains Lot by one point.

But who wins the trophy could well be settled in the committee room if they cannot complete the fixtures.

Fiesta (Gerry Dobson) moved up a couple of places thanks to a late burst, with 12 shots in three ends to beat Next (Rob Moran) by six shots.

Strollers (Roger Shergold) look booked for the wooden spoon after losing by 12-shots to College Park (Clive Carter).

It was confirmed that Griffs were the winners of the Wednesday League, as Poachers (Cyril Rutter) clinched second place with a five-shot victory against Gravediggers (Dave Perks).

Gilberts (Eric Purchase) made sure of a top-half finish with a 14-shot victory against Assassins (Steve Harper), as did Hawkers (John Vinten) who finished the season in style, with a 16-shot win against Combine (Len Chubb).

There was a rare victory for lowly Tangiers (Gerry Dobson) as they beat Trevors Pals (Tony Ayling) by six shots.

New Team (Alan Sprake) were confirmed the winners of the Friday League when they enjoyed an 11-shot victory against Fareways (Steve Reilly).

Still on course for the runners-up spot are Wickers (Tom Edgerller) who scored four shots in the final two ends to defeat Standons (Ted Coward).

But it was not all bad news for Standons as they had earlier enjoyed a comfortable 11-shot victory against Biggles (Mick Gonnella).

Toromos (Arthur Newland) lost any chance of winning the trophy when they could only tie with Spanners (Bob Chadwick).

Biggest win of the week belonged to Metros (Ken Morgan) as they trounced Jays (Frank Foulger) by 27 shots.

In the Tuesday Day League, the trio of Mark Howe, Tom Edgerller and Dale Evers just failed to qualify for the Hot Shot Badges as they fired eight on the 10th end on their way to beating College Park (Dave Peach) by one shot.
