*There is no engraving on this cup for 1974 but the Skipper Cup shows that Pig & Whistle were the runners up for this year.
It is recorded in the committee minutes the Pig & Whistle and Hope Inn were in the finals of the Skittle Competition, it can therefore be assumed that Hope Inn were the winners.
