At the start of day 3 three of the counties were in contention to win. In a close match with some close games between Ayrshire and D&A , D&A won by 4.5 to 3.5.
This meant that D&A could only be beaten if Renfrewshire beat Lanarkshire. After 6 games were completed the score in that match was 3 all but Lanarkshire won the last 2 games at the 18th to win 5 to 3.
