In the latest match on the venue it was Jeff Tuttlebee taking the honours.

Drawn next to the bridge, he alternated between the whip and waggler and caught small roach, rudd and perch all day on maggot to finish with 11lb 14oz.

Not far off the pace was runner-up Mel Saggers on the opposite end of the match length. He started trying to catch small fish but after a difficult early spell he decided to switch to a chopped worm and caster line which produced four tench for 10lb 8oz.
