* The annual inter-club trophy match between the Senior Citizens and Stevenage Leisure took place last Thursday.

This year it was the Senior Citizens' turn to host, so although both teams play at Stevenage Leisure Centre, SLC IBC were technically the away side!

A friendly game saw the Senior Citizens take the Matador Trophy by winning three rinks and losing only one (88-62).

SLC IBC's only winning rink was that of Betty Barnett, Joyce Williams, Les Carr and Mary Mothersill (skip).
