Held at the local venue of Underwood Community Hall, Notts narrowly outpointed Warwickshire by 7-5. 
Notts took an early  31/2 - 1/2  lead but Warwickshire then levelled the score with three wins. The two Ashfield players in the team then contributed points with a Nigel Wright king & pawn endgame win followed by a steady draw from Andrew Flint that enabled Notts to take a 6-5 lead with the last game in play. Len Morrell (Radcliffe) saw through his opponent's attempts to complicate and with the time control reached, the Warwickshire resignation secured the match.
