Over 70's match 21st September 2016

The 0ver 70's (and 80's) fished the penultimate match in their series on Knotts, where 9 anglers tried to improve their points totals. Ken North took the win, with Jim Knott and Bill Dixon tied for second. With one match to go Ken and Bill are joint leaders but any one of 8 anglers could still win the title. And with the very odd results that these matches have produces this year, its anyone's game. The result was:

K North 4lb 8oz

J Knott and W Dixon 1lb 8oz

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
