Finishing in second place was Keith 'Eggy Eggy' Oldhams. Keith drew peg 17 and fished corn short and down his edge to find a good quality stamp of fish up to 6lbs. Keith caught steadily throughout the match to end proceedings with 134-10-00.
Third place was taken by Ian Johnson from peg 13 with 76-12-00.
