  3. Mike Atherton      32lb  1oz

Twenty-one Radcliffe legends made the trip up for this week’s match at Lake View. The match was to be fished over two lakes – Lagoon & Serpent. After waiting over an hour to be served for breakfast, the match finally began 15 minutes later than planned!

Nic Wort drew favoured peg 4 on Lagoon and made it count by catching carp and F1’s shallow on the pole; he went on to weigh an impressive 71lb 11oz for a match win.

Over on Serpent, Barry Stokes and Ian Farrow were both catching very small F1’s from the word go. Barry eventually managed to find some bigger bonus carp in the later stages of the match to finish up in 2nd place overall with a final weight of 44lb 6oz.

‘Superstar’ Mike Atherton also caught well on Serpent after his practice session earlier that week, amassing a weight of 32lb 1oz and taking 3rd place.

Phil Aldridge, also on Serpent, narrowly missed out on 3rd, finishing with a weight of 31lb 2oz and taking 4th place.
Mark Baker, fishing on ill-favoured Lagoon peg 19, put in a strong last hour to weigh 26lb 6oz and finish second on the lake, narrowly beating Fred Barry in the Knock Out cup.
