Ken Davison and Mike Hilton got North off to a good start with a 3/2 win over Blackburn club Captain Steve Wilcock and Rob Wyke but Blackburn were soon on level terms with a fine 2/1 win by Graham Davies and George Grant over Tommy Keogh and Phil Tonge.

The two wins for Roger Carter and JJ Walsh by 5/4 and David Birrane and John Boardman by 3/2 took North home before Martin Tate and Jimmy Reid secured a consolation win in the final match.
