The final match of the season was for the new 'Shoot The Moon' trophy, which was kindly sponsored by Oliver Zebedee-Howard. And fittingly, the first name on the new Trophy will actually be Olly himself! Basically he had it won in the first 45 minutes with four cracking carp in peg 5.
Also, the last match of the season was going to determine the Club Champion for 2018. Simon Newsham lead Craig Gorton by a single point but Simon did not fish the last match so it was left to Craig to try and get 2 points or more to take the Championship, which he managed to do by 1oz from his dad, Mick.

Well done to Craig! Our new Club Champion for 2018!!!

In an emphatic victory, Nigel Ashworth wins the Fur & Feather out of peg 14. In a very tactical match it was a well timed push in the final hour that secured the victory. As nobody else caught, 2nd place was decided by a blind draw!
8 fished and one sat in his van!
