  Match summary        

The first all-Allstars match honoured Phil Yarrow's impending departure for Chicago, to marry the American sweetheart he met in Nottingham. Team selection was consequently based upon an individual Allstar's "marital" status on match-day.

No official record exists of this inaugural all-Allstar game at Grove Farm, but general consensus has the score at 6-5 to Girlfriends. A quick glance at the respective team photos above, however, should elicit no surprise that, for playing parity, The Bachelor Boys required an extra member!
