The main final was between Sandra Cooper & Elspeth Hartley against Janis Wright and Andrew Gee. They were playing for the Mollie Donovan Trophy. 

The mid-afternoon final was a mixture of sunshine and downpours watched by a few hardy souls outside and several people inside the conservatory. It was nip and tuck to start with, Andrew as usual using a short mark very well but not able to open up a substantial lead. After a 5 minute rain break Sandra led a very long corner jack and with Elspeth backing her up superbly, they opened up a good lead knowing they only needed 15 points in total. Andrew and Janis had a quick conference and changed over their leader and this had an immediate effect. Janis led mid length with an excellent first bowls and things started to get tasty. Needing one to win at 14-12 up Sandra went to the conservatory corner but Janis and Andrew each had a counting bowl in the head so it was effectively 14 all with Andrew to bowl the last of the end. He knew he needed just to bowl this in to win it but they were holding two and after a deal of thought off went his last bowl. It ran and so did Andrew willing it along but he knew it was short, in fact he even made 'Chicken Noises' himself, 'why didn't I put more in it' he muttered.  So at 14-14 it all went to the last end which Sandra & Elspeth sneaked home to win 15-14. 

The first round losers of the Trophy competition went forward to compete for the plate. The winners of this competition were Martin Forster and Mary Barmby who beat Bill Clelland and Derek Finch in the final.
