A finals night followed at the Milky Way, Clovelly, with cup and plate knockout competitions.

The overall trophy for the team with the highest aggregate of points and money raised went to Bradworthy Social Club, who raised £588 and scored 46,567 points.

Trophy for the greatest number of points went to the Lion Cubs from the Golden Lion in High Bickington with 54,224. Highest individual was Josh Phillips from the Lion Cubs with 10,630 points.
