Norman Wilcock, John Kilby, Ray Andrews and Mark Stannard from Melton BC were well in control for most of their first game, against Worcestershire B, and looked to be on course to run out comfortable winners. They let the game slip in the last few ends and dropped a four on end 20 to go into the last end 20 all. The game hung in the balance when Mark Stannard came to play his last bowl. With Suffolk holding second bowl, he was right on target to force the Worcestershire shot bowl out of the head, but on its way out, it also removed Suffolk's bowl, leaving victory to Worcestershire.
