Rycroft – 8th May 2016

Moat Pool   (Stanley Trophy)

  1. Gary Pilsworth  176lb 10oz
  2. Mark Baker         65lb  3oz
  3. Nick Martin         56lb 10oz

On a day when it finally looked like summer had arrived, 16 anglers turned up and fished in glorious conditions.

Gary went one better than in the previous match and made no mistake from peg 29. He was fishing into the corner next to the inlet pipe and caught carp throughout the match on worm, feeding soil, and was just 3lb short of breaking Mark Baker’s 179lb match record!

Mark took 2nd place, catching carp on the pellet and bomb from peg 22.  This was just enough to beat Nick Martin on the next peg (21), who had actually drawn Mark in the KO Cup!

In other Knock-Out Cup results there were wins for Cory Williamson, Andy Carr, Rich Nickels and Craig Welbourne.
