Over 60's match 21st September 2016

For the second match in September the over 60s moved to Alders because it has been fishing well enough recently.  Steve Thame continued his winning run for a total of 4 wins in the series, to beat Brian Cripps. Because the series is the best 6 results, Steve and Dave Smith are dropping the weaker results now, and Steve is near his theoretical maximum with 58 points already. The top three found big fish, with only scraps for the lower places. The full result was:

Steve Thame 7-10-0 4 Bream peg 10

Brian Cripps 5-0-0 1 Bream 1 Tench peg 6

Merv Burrows 2-12-0 1 Bream peg 12

Steve Thame restored his winning ways to win ahead of Brian Cripps. The full result was:

Steve Thame 8-6-0

Brian Cripps 5-5-0

Dave Smith 3-14-0

Over 70's match 17th August 2016

The over 70's (and over 80's) took their mid-August match to Dobsons where a field of 9 anglers tackled a very difficult water, with the fish not biting much at all. Only two managed to catch and weigh in. The points would push G Wooton and Eric Goswell to the upper middle of the points table, poised nidely for the next round. In short the result is:

G Wootton   1lb 8oz

E Goswell   6oz
