The team comprised Arlene Pilgrim, Sue Lupton, Gordon Russell, Di Ward, Stephen Andrews, Derek Cooper and Mike Bass, with non-playing captain Sylvia Noyes.

The away teams, skippered by Ron Barron and Dave Nicholls, were both well beaten.
Wedmore 51, Taunton Deane 113: D Collins, D Stansfield, K Pettit, S Eastment 13-23; T Brown, J Runciman, K Philimore, E Payne 16-29; B Back, K Burt, C Moss, R Barron 11-29; R Newell, M Green, R Thurkettle, D Nicholls 11-32.
In a mixed friendly at home, Wedmore met Wells. Skippers Alan Birch and Maureen Hordle both led their teams to decisive victories.
The match was played in an excellent spirit and much credit is due to the Wells contingent as many of their players do not play regularly indoors.
