The series was decided last week with Brian Gibson finishing just ahead of Stan Binge, with Matt Roberts third. With the lack of rain in the spring and recent changeable weather the venue is very unpredictable and any peg or angler could win.

RESULT (Last Saturday): 1. Ian Benton Fox Match Stanjay 14lb 13oz; 2. John Younger Cromwell Lake 12lb 15oz; 3. Brian Gibson Fox Match Stanjay 12lb 12oz.
