Mens Finals

 42-years after wining his first county title Gosforth's Mick McGreevy lifted the trophy that has eluded him to date. In 1974 McGreevy triumphed in the Under 25 Singles championship and despite many other titles coming his way, including a National Pairs Runners-up medal in 1982, the Singles looked to have passed him by when losing out in the final in 2012. Today however McGreevy joined an elite group of players to have won all four of the major county championships with a 21-18 win over 1999 champion Paul Ging (BW).

In the Pairs event Internationals Josh Minto & Chris Yeomans (G) held on to defeat Darren Parkes & Chris Palmer (ST) 23-20. The Gosforth Pair picked up a big score with the game evenly poised and despite the efforts of the St Georges Pair Minto & Yeomans lifted the title in only their second year of playng together.
