Fourteen (14) anglers from the Black Boy attended this four hour club fixture on the Island pool.
Winner on the day was Bill Phillips, who drew unfancied peg 5 on the dam wall. Opting to fish a pellet feeder for the duration of the match, Bill was able to find a decent number of smaller carp plus roach and skimmer bream to weigh in 36-02-00.
Finishing in second place on the day was Alfie Beard, who drew peg 13 on the point of the island. Fishing pole & pellet down his left hand edge, Alfie struggled for a good part of the match, but found some fish late on to offer 20-10-00 to the scales.
Third place was taken by Paul Lowe, who drew peg 14. Starting his match over to the island on the feeder, he found a couple of carp early on before his bites dried up. Switching to maggot down his edge, Paul found odd carp, but lost a good number of fish to weigh in a final 16-13-00.
