It was between Tunshill pair Rebecca Owen and Carol Platt and Julie Connolly (Oldham) and Carol Corlett (Rochdale).
The third and fourth places competition was played between Denton’s Norma McIlvanney and Edith Rooney, and Styal’s Aileen Holohan and Claire Whitney, who won the Captain’s Trophy in 2016.
The Tunshill duo made history for their club by winning the coveted trophy for the first time ever and the third place went to the Denton pair.
