    3. Pemberton Old Wigan JJB (M.Peacock) - 191 (3)
    4. Freckleton (P.Dalton) - 190 (7)
    5. Bactiguard Wire Brass (P.Andrews) - 189 (4)
    6. Powerfuel Hatfield Colliery (G.O'Connor) - 186 (3)
    7. Poulton-le-Fylde (S.Tarry) - 184 (2)
    8. Blackpool Brass (A.Warriner) - 182 (1)

    If you're talking about Formby winning the National Finals, that's national gradings. Preston is local grading me thinx.
