East Midlands Winter League Open Match
This match was fished on the town section of the Welland and on the Glen on Sunday and, as usual, provided some of the anglers with a fantastic day's fishing while others struggled to catch for all or some of the time.
All the top weights came from the Welland, with Wades' Dave Thornton the match winner, weighing in a fantastic 38lb 8oz.
In second place was Mark One's Simon Godfrey with 29lb, third was Jof Hewett and fourth Tony Watling Senior.
Next Sunday will not be easy with just four points covering the top six clubs in the league, and until the draw is made no angler knowing whether they will need to put a good weight together or fish for just a few bites.
RESULT: 1 Dave Thornton Wades MG 38lb 8oz, 2 Simon Godfrey Mark One 29lb, 3 Jof Hewett Mark One 22lb 3oz, 4 Tony Watling Browning Hotrods 20lb 14oz, 5 Jon Whincup Essex County VDE
