Holmfirth A beat New Mill in a tense final at a very wet Brockholes to win the Veterans Sub Team Knockout title.
Despite all the rain the green was running well and it resulted in a cracking climax, with Holmfirth (off 35) eventually taking it by just a point at 152-151.
It all depended on the last match on the green. Another point for New Mill (off 20) would have won them the final, but it was not to be and Holmfirth took it by the narrowest of margins.
Alan Stephenson, president of the Veterans Association, presented the prizes and thanked everyone involved, particular the referee who was out all afternoon in the rain and the ladies in the tea room, who kept people going with hot drinks and home made cakes.
