The result of the CC match on Speen Moors 10 Sep. On a windy day the river was very patchy. Brian Pallett was in the middle field on peg 30 and had a lovely bag of roach and dace. Steve Thame was on the end peg on Green bank and caught consistently with Brian Cripps in the big weir also having a good day.   The main river was poor down in the woods which had produced good bags of roach and dace in recent weeks.  The run down was:

Brian Pallett 7-8-0

Steve Thame 5-12-0

Brian Cripps 5-2-0
