John Barton Memorial Trophy - Village / Club
13th July: An extremely enjoyable afternoon was had by everyone who attended, made even better by the afternoon tea that was great with all the home-made goodies brought along.
The Aspiring Village was beaten by the Club (Town) by 104 points to 88, so the Town are the holders of the John Barton Memorial Trophy until next year. - Jim Feehly
