'Un, appearing in their first FTQL Final, back to be all-square after 8 rounds at 81 points each. After that they
moved away from and ahead of their opponents, with one spectacular round in particular that they won 11 points to 1 and from
that point the outcome of the match and destination of the trophy was a formality and by the end Kippax were 21 points in
front to win the Handicap Cup.
This Final was then followed by the league's
popular annual Pairs Quiz, set by Neil Aspland, where pairs of players are drawn out at
random to play together and this was won by Stuart Topps of Last Orders playing with Steve Inman of Kippax who had been
paired together in the ballot. Refreshments were taken and a raffle along with the
