SIXTEEN-year-old old Brad Kendall had a remarkable result last week while on holiday at Whiteacres, near Newquay in Cornwall.

The young angler achieved his first-ever match win in a 60-peg silver fish match. Brad, who caught 57lb, won £110 and a week's holiday at Whiteacres - with a chance to qualify for their festival. He also proved that it was not a fluke when he finished seventh of 105 anglers in a rover match later in the week, with 75lb.

CONDITIONS were awful for the hardy anglers who fished last Thursday's Coote Cup match, with torrential thundery rain and the river nearing flood levels.

Nevertheless, there were some good weights, with Colin Leach winning with 22lb. Tony McGregor was second and Paul Ashcroft came in third.

Match secretary Chris Geeson, who has been more than happy to recount the disasters of his club mates in recent matches, had a nightmare himself, weighing only ounces next to the winner.

RESULT: 1 Colin Leach 22lb, 2 Tony McGregor 18lb 12oz, 3 Paul Ashcroft 8lb.

The River Mill won this match, lead by individual winner Aron Holloway who weighed in with 9lb taken from peg two.
