These 2 sides were tied for 3rd in Div 1 on identical points prior to the match and inevitably they shared the 10 points. Rainham were always slightly ahead in this match and it wasn't until an extremely close Doubles that Cliffe Woods were able to secure the draw. Nick Trythall was in great form for Rainham resisting all Woods could throw at him and teammate Mick Hambelton only lost out to Peter Mortley. A blank night for John Coleman although he did lose to both the Mortleys in 5 after being 2-1 up in legs and in 4 to Andy Larner.
