Rick Liddle Wins Club Match Sunday 9th May


An amazing eighteen anglers turned up to fish the EJAS Sunday Club match held on Jubilee Pool. Conditions were mild with a very strong southerly wind blowing down the pool. It was decided that the first four anglers overall would receive the main prize monies. In addition there was a Section prize to fish for outside the main prizes.

The winner of the match in a close fought contest was Rick Liddell weighing in 19lb 10oz of carp on J13. Rick's catch consisted of four carp taken I believe on the pole.

Second place was taken by Pete Lewis weighing in four carp for 17lb 9oz on J12.

Third place was secured by John Cox weighing in 17lb 6oz of carp on J10. John's catch was taken on pole fished corn.

The final main frame prize was claimed by Martin Smith weighing in 16lb 6oz of carp on J3. Martin's catch of four carp was taken on the feeder.

Section winners were Alan Gardner weighing in one carp for 5lb 3oz on J5 ( Section J1,2,3,5,7 and 8), Patrick O'Connell weighing in two carp for 11lb 3oz on J9 ( Section J9,10.11,12,13 and 15) and Roy Freeth weighing in 12lb 4oz of carp on J21 ( Section J17,19,20,21,23 and 25).

Overall the fishing was hard in the cold conditions. A vote by the persons present lead to the £50 Bonus Peg being added to the clubs fish fund.
