In the away section Christine Macaulay, Sandie Cox, Annette Flockhart and Liz Smerdon claimed a whopping 30-8 success whilst there was a 20-12 reversal suffered by Jan Roberts, Jenny Smith, Brenda Marks and Catherine King 12 – 20.

In a Lane Trophy fixture against Plymouth there was a 24-13 defeat for the the rink of Jan Worsfold, Jenny Charles, Carole Worth and Val Allam, but success for Jose Glaister, Penny Preece, Ann Doidge and Thelma Wildon who won 15-13.

It was a victorious trip for the players playing the away leg of the match with a 23-13 success for Lin Halpin, Janet Gosling, Jean Bagnall and May Dyson whilst Dee Williams, Fay Hughes, Janet Grundy and Nikki Fiddimore won 19-12.
