This season's Spring Cup Final was won by the Betteshanger Club, Deal after their close victory over the Plough & Harrow, Bridge B side.. The overall match result was 3-3 but the Deal side won on the aggregate scores ruling after a close match at the Magnet in Deal.
The P&H team won the first singles game through John Fullager (4,570) but Betteshanger hit back strongly as John Addley (8,000) and then Chris Saville (9,620) both won with decisively big scores in the 3,000 maximum break rules games to put them 2-1 ahead.
The first doubles match saw the Bridge side draw level as Kevin Kay & Fullager (4,020) played excellently to win the game, but Betteshanger struck a decisive blow in the next leg when Neville Potts & Saville (1,900) edged a very close game by just 20 points on the last shot to put them ahead again. This meant that Plough & Harrow had to win the last doubles leg using the triangle rules by over 7,000 to win the match, which proved too much as Fullager & Stan Brocklebank (2,560) won, but by nowhere near enough points.
(Final aggregate scores were Betteshanger 23,350 vs 15,870 P&H Bridge)
