THE final match of this season's club championship was fished on Lou's Lake at Decoy on Sunday.
The match was won by Colin 'Ollie' Oliver with 23lb, with Nick Marriott second with 19lb and Pete Carter finishing third.
Starting the day one point behind Nick in the championship standings, a combination of winning this match and having lower results to discard from earlier matches was just enough to see Ollie home as club champion for a second successive year.
With his win on Sunday coming courtesy of a 4lb plus carp that made its way into his landing net tail first, Ollie looks set to have a very lucky 2008.
RESULT: 1 Colin Oliver 23lb; 2 Nick Marriott 19lb; 3 Pete Carter 17lb; 4 Ian Crawford 11lb 8oz.
