We hosted a battle with Oldham PS, which was judged by Keith Barber from Swinton & District PS. There were sixty PDIs (thirty from each club) and after totalling up the points, SPC was pronounced the creditable runner–up, with 477 points. Congratulations go to the winners, Oldham PS, who amassed the grand total of 492 points.

Thanks to Keith for giving his time and expertise and to Oldham PS for making the evening a success.
