Round-up: East Mids Winter League kicks off

Angling with Stan and Fizz



THE first round of this year’s league was fished on the Nene at Peterborough on Sunday.

There are only six teams in the league, with Wades and Peterborough having merged under the Garbolino Peterborough banner, and Mark One only fielding one team.

There were sections at Orton Down, Railworld and Middleholme. All the best weights came from Middleholme with the matchwinner, Hotrods’ Jon Hazelden, weighing in 15lb 12oz ahead of teammate Will Freeman.

Teamwise, Maver Bait-tech were the winners on the day by 10 points. Fox Match Stanjay Gold finished in second spot with four section wins from Anthony Watling, Martin Caldecoat, Lee Klimczuk and Jon Whincup, plus a second from Mark Pollard, counteracted by three last-in-sections.
