Despite the venue having staffing problems that caused a change from the Sunday to the Saturday, 40 players attended the Cambridge Trigantius at Parkside Community College. Andrew Simons (3d) was again the winner. This time he beat the new organiser, David Ward (2d) in the last round. Equal second with David was local student Jamie Taylor (1d), a former under-18 champion. Tim Hunt (2d) also won two to come fourth. Two local students, Tom Eccles (5k) and Joe He (9k) won all three games and they, and all those on two wins, were rewarded with prizes.
