Tex was included in the over 70’s team that took part in a three team, round robin, tournament with Dorset and Wales. In their first game the GMWFL team beat Dorset 4 – 0, then beat Wales 5 – 1 to win the trophy.
Stewart played in the over 65’s category which, due to late withdrawals. was reduced to two teams, GMWFL and Wales
