Nene Summer League

ALTHOUGH the river was out of sorts for the final match in this year's summer series, long-time leaders Van Den Eynde picked up enough fish to seal the win.

The team have secured three first places and one second across the series to finish way ahead of their challengers.

Roach were not feeding on the match day and so bonus fish became important.
