Tournament Secretary: Graham Humphreys

For the Withnall trophy, clubs from the north were paired (at random), against clubs from the south.  When there were no clubs remaining in one group, any remaining clubs were paired against each other.  For the other cups, pairings were drawn at random from all clubs taking part in each event.

Hickman final

For the first time in several years, West Bromwich competed for the title of Staffordshire County Champions this year (the Hickman Trophy). Unfortunately for their players, last year's winners were also in the final, and they had other ideas.

Congratulations to David Anderton and the Walsall Kipping. With a 4½ - 1½ victory, they retained the trophy.
