TRIALS OF 1938
Trials have a very big following and it is of interest to look back and refresh one’s memory of the more important 1938 events. To simplify the issue, only the winner of the Premier Prize is quoted, where this indicates best performance irrespective of capacity or club. Where two divisions both represent best performance the joint winners are given. From the following list it is possible to derive sonic idea of who would have taken the B.T.D.A. Trials Star in 1938, had there been one :
