After several days of heavy rain and the river up and pushing through it was decided to move the match to the GUC. The nearby River Tove had been flowing into the canal and had turned the water into a muddy looking colour. However one section of the match length fished very well as the top three from the nineteen that fished came from this area.
Les Goodridge had an excellent weight of 14lb 6ozs of skimmers from 4ozs up to 1lb 8oz for first place. Second with a similar catch for 12lb 10ozs was Ivor Stokes and also again in third and a net full of skimmers for 9lb 2ozs was Rob Pottinger.
1st Les Goodridge – 14lb 6 oz
2nd Ivor Stokes – 12lb 10 oz
3rd Rob Pottinger – 9lb 2oz
