The South Hams and Plymouth clubs joined forces to represent "West Devon". Newton Abbot and Teignmouth formed the "South Devon" team, while members of the Exeter, Exmouth and Tiverton clubs represented "East Devon"
Tony Tatam, non-playing match captain for the West, said:
- I set out to try and balance the team with 6 players from South Hams and 6 from Plymouth which I eventually achieved. We finished with 8 points which were evenly spread with 4 from South Hams and 4 from Plymouth. What more could I ask for?
- Well done everyone, great team effort and great result.
