Thirteen members fished this match, on a bright sunny day with a lot of fish showing before the all in. All anglers caught from the start, but it soon become clear that to frame in the top four, anglers would have to start catching carp. At the end of the five hour match, the angler who came out on top was Asa (The Roach Man) Cooper with 4 carp and a net of silvers for a winning weight of 24lb11oz. Making his return to the match scene after a few years away was James Slack, still showing he was a bit rusty and using a pole that looked like it was made of rubber and despite loosing five carp, he managed to finish a worthy 2nd with 17lb 8oz. Mark Gregory came home in third, with Malc Bent rounding up the top four. Derek Page, son of the late George presented the trophy to the winner, for the second year running ASA (THE ROACH MAN) COOPER , you spoilt a good match catching them carp.
