14 anglers took part in the event ,,conditions were mild and wet, good nets of both skimmer bream and quality roach featured from all around the lake. Veteran Paul Elworthy took full advantage of a reasonable draw to completely dominate the match with a faultless display of feeder fishing from peg 1 , 2nd spot was more closely fought , Pauls travelling partner Stuart Shelley  took it with another feeder catch from peg 10 by the hole in the wall. Kevin came in third next peg to the winner also with a feeder catch. .Colin’s 4th place is worthy of a mention from peg 9 ,not normally in the draw bag, and his 1st visit to the venue .
