Stamford Saints, representing the indoor club in the Fantastic Fives national league, had a chance to start the new season by sharing the points with Charnwood but just came up short.

After losing both singles and fours, the Saints team of Jeannette Bourne and Peggy Birch raced into an 8-3 lead in the pairs, hanging on for a single shot win. Then in the triples David Howarth, Jeff Bourne and Roger Graham trailed 4-8 needing five shots for a win  to share the points overall. However, they could only manage a draw.

Earlier Graham dropped four shots in the last two ends to lose his singles (9-12) while the fours, skipped by Birch went down 6-7.
