Walsham triple of Shirley White, Tracy Webb and Jeremy Webb retained the Guinness Cup on Sunday at the St Botolphs Club.

They faced a 10-end final against Mark James, Pat Jennings and Ann Lilley of Ixworth, and soon led 7-1.

Ixworth responded to trail 10-9 prior to the eighth end, before Walsham gained two.

The next end was decisive. Ixworth held two, but in trying to add a third to tie the match, the jack was disturbed. Walsham took the shot and led by four with one end to play. A final single to Ixworth was a consolation.

In the third/fourth place play-off, Sonya Foreman, Fred Spinks and Ralph Marsh of Tuddenham faced Richard Hayden, Bob Stubbs and Scott Parrin of Stanton and won 11-6.
