St Andrews played the first round of the Denny Cup against Yate and, despite the rinks of Don Bailey and Tony Steer winning by 35 shots, they were defeated by two shots.

The following day was the Egham Trophy. This is a mixed competition and, on paper, St Andrews had a tough encounter ahead of them against Ilminster. However, Don Bailey’s rink struggled against an international skip away, but the rinks of Barry Forse (away), Gordon Wride and Meg Favis at home, all managed a win, this giving Saints a six-shot victory.

St Andrews put out two Over-60 double rinks teams. The A team had a tough game against BCL. Barry Forse’s away rink only played 18 ends and finished 13 shots up, whilst Don Bailey’s rink at home overcame the might of Barry Smith and Don Foulks, finishing at 19 ends winning by 10 shots.

St Andrews played their first County League game against Yeovil. This was a winning fixture last season, but Yeovil made sure of revenge with four winning rinks.
