Five clubs took part - Gorleston, Lowestoft, Kirkley & Pakefield, Blofield United and Caister, who stood in at the last minute.

Each team played each other once and the two teams with the best records met in the final which Kirkley & Pakefield won 2-0 against Gorleston.

Sailor's daughter Julie presented the trophies.

Thanks went to all the clubs who took part and created an excellent atmosphere. Martin Sinclair was congratulated on his efforts looking after the Gorleston team on the day (see new manager story on back page, P72.)
