Scott Turner, also with a much-changed block, made up of Bill Turner, Colin Butcher and Mal French, also assisted matters with a 18 shots to 10 win.

Another Browston youngster, 15-year-old Charlie Toplis, also figured in the success of Dennis Pratt’s squad together with Phil Ellis and Eddie MacDonald — coming home 21 shots to 16.
