The final played over eight ends started well for the home side with a 1, 1 & 3 to lead 5-0 after three ends, on the fourth end East Hanningfield were holding six when the stonyhill skip Tony Ealham played a weighted wood and scattered all the woods while his one stayed given Stonyhill the shot.

On the final end Tony had a chance of getting a four which would have taken the final to an extra end but he had to take two Hanningfield woods out of the end while he stayed with his own, unfortunately he only managed to take one out to claim 2 shots, so East Hanningfield won by 9 shots to 7.
