Hunts delivered a dominant Adams Trophy display to whitewash North Cambs last Saturday.

The local men triumphed on all six rinks in a one-sided clash at Huntingdon to record a monster 270-92 overall success.

The all-Hemingfords rink of Owen Kennedy, also featuring Richard Wilson and Scott Wilson, were the biggest winners with a 60-6 victory.

Ed Elmore’s all-Warboys trio of Tom Swannell and Ian McWhinney also racked up a half-century of shots by winning 51-15.

Lewis Baker, Ian Swannell, Robert Jepson and former world indoor champion Nicky Brett were the other triumphant skips.

Hunts are away to Northants this Saturday in both Adams Trophy and Newton Trophy clashes.
