The Manchester team of John Holland, Alan Mould, Michael Byrne, Michael Newman and Rodney Lighton has won the Pachabo Cup, held in West Bromwich on 6th & 7th June.

The event, for the winners of each county's teams of four event, is scored using a combination of Point-a-Board and VPs. The Manchester team rallied after a slow start to lead at the halfway stage, and ultimately finished on 239 points, 5.5 points ahead of the field.

The Surrey team of Jeffrey Allerton, Mike Scoltock, Graham Osborne and Frances Hinden narrowly took second place, finishing just half a point ahead of the Kent representatives, Gerald Tredinnick, Stuart Tredinnick, Jeremy Willans and Norman Selway.
