Much lower turn out on this local match than anticipated, this was probably due to the fact Fish-O-Mania was on the previous day, and the weather is also a factor.
Loads of space for everyone, draw the previous night threw out some predictions and on this occasion Mark Walton didn’t disappoint. Catching from early on down the edge, took the match in his stride never really stopping catching all day.
A few changes in the weather didn’t help, with glourious sunshine, manic rain, hail stone and even snow. But all braved it and caught, no one blanked which is always a bonus.
Well done to the framers.
Golden peg was peg 18 drawn Paul Nadin, but after a good effort, only managed 5th place.
1st – Mark Walton (45lb)
