After an initial abandoned draw, the match got underway on time, with Mark Baker and Phil Aldridge drawing the fancied pegs 10 and 11 on Snake. Charlotte Baker got off to a flying start on Snake, 23 (a corner peg), landing her first carp only minutes into the match. From then on, however, it became quite clear that the fish were down in the fancied pegs, with Mark Baker and Phil Aldridge catching steadily throughout the day.

Meanwhile, on Reptile Pool, David Burton was catching a few fish, as was new club member, Andrew Patton.

The match finished with Mark Baker taking overall 1st, off Snake peg 10, weighing in 75lb 4oz, caught down the side on the pole and over to the ‘famous’ snags. Phil Aldridge also caught on the pole to finish 2nd with a final weight of 64lb 10oz.
New member Andrew Patton, fished well on Reptile 18, to finish overall 3rd with a final weight of 43lb 8oz.
