This was a teams of four challenge match for the Lamcote Cup with a total of 14 teams taking part split over RoTAS, Barnstone, Long Eaton and Bottesford clubs.

On the day, Bottesford Gold won with 16 points, ahead of RoTAS Black on 20 points. The RoTAS Black team consisted of Mark Baker, Gary Pilsworth, Phil Aldridge and Nic Wort.

Nic took individual victory with a catch of bream on the pole feeder down the edge at peg 33 on the Viaducts.  Phil Johnson also had a cracking day just a couple of pegs away, catching 8 bream and losing a couple at Viaducts 35.

Mark was drawn not far from the Viaducts bridge and was left licking his wounds, along with Dave Burton, as they both lost big barbel which cost their respective teams potential 1st and 2nd places. Just to rub a little salt into those wounds, Rich Nickels had a short session on the Trent just a day or two later and landed the superb 12lb 12oz fish seen in the photo below! Apparently, Mark’s hook was nowhere to be seen!

Tom Skelton progressed to the next round in the KO cup.
