The new Years Day shield was contested on Speen Moors as part of the club championship series, and produced a runaway win for Steve Myers who bagged 2 chub and 7 good bream for 34lb from peg 12, making it his second win in a row. Second place was Ade Ager with nearly 8lb including 2 chub. However with 2 matches to go Dave Chandler has a complete match in hand over Ade Ager and would need a collapse in form to lose it now. The river fished well, here is the full result:

Steve Myers 34-1-0

Ade Ager 7-13-0

Les Durnford 4-3-0
