Hosts Leighton Buzzard put out a strong team and were very close to being the overall winners on the day, but the winning spot went to Chelmsford CC by a single race point. Stortford were third on the day, which means that BSCC now stands third in the WS league table behind Leighton Buzzard.
BSCC were again the team winning most points from unranked juniors so have consolidated our lead for winning the Dick Grieve trophy.
