PAUL Graham produced a man of the match display to lead Grindon to an 18-13 victory in the D&P Trophies Sunderland Club League’s Memorial Trophy final against holders Steels.

Steels started strongly, but a spirited fightback, led by K. Wheatley, ensured a 5-5 draw in the first rink.

Graham played a key role in the second rink, not allowing Steels to increase their lead, with his excellent defensive play, restricting the defeat to 5-3.

After a touch and go start to the third, Grindon got the upper hand and ran out 10-3 winners.

In the final league game, Farringdon beat Mitchells 7-1 to end on a high.
