Nigel wins Rudyard

Great fishing on Bradshaws Lake 3 with Eddy taking top honours.
It's now getting tight at the top of the league with only 1 point separating Oli and Eddy, and Callum coming up fast on the outside. Could Callum retain his title? Still 7 matches to go though. Time for a little wager between yourselves boys?

Some good weights on Wednesday evening, 28th June resulting in a new 3 hour match record.
Nigel Ashworth - 68lb 1oz, Eddy Hegarty - 34lb, Mark Ashworth - 28lb and Paul Benson - 19lb 8oz.

Pete wins a very close match to take the Homewaters Trophy. 'The hand of God' strikes twice in one day! Much better weights now being seen from various pegs around the lake, and yes, Colin did draw peg 1 again to make it 3 times in a row!!!!
Screenshot 2023-06-19 at 13.59.12

On the Wednesday night match Chris Egerton had the best weight so far this year on Lane Head! Bearing in mind that this is only a 3 hour match, his weight of 57lb 11oz on peg 10 is the second best ever recorded for an evening match, so well done to Chris.
Eddy was second with another good weight of 39lb
Chris 57lb

Colin, with 'the hand of God' draws peg 1 again!! Well done again for taking full advantage. Oli in 2nd place maintains his position at the top of the league.

Eddy was back in peg 1 (again!!!) to take the first win in the Winter League series.
Screenshot 2022-10-03 at 17.49.46

Well done to Eddy taking the last match of the season and the 'Shoot The Moon' Trophy.
However, there was a bit more at stake in this last match. Eddy could still catch Callum for the league title and it was a nail biter until the last two to weigh.
With Eddy on the in-form peg 1, he managed to take advantage with the win. Callum had to at least come 3rd to take the title and that's just what he diid. Commiserations to Eddy but a huge well done to Callum in his first season at the club!
There is also a little matter of a £100 side bet with Matt which I am sure will be the most important part of it!!

Your Club Champ for 2022

Eddy wins Shoot Moon

A brilliant win for Colin in peg 6. However, in future he just needs to keep an eye on his keep net at the end of the match to avoid having to wade in to look for it in his 'Y' fronts! Luckily Oli had already secured it for him and very kindly placed it in his peg!!! Well done Oli, but next time just remember to let Colin know that, to avoid any more embarrassment! A video is available on our facebook page for you pleasure!
Also well done to Callum, sneaking another point closer to the League Title!

With another new match record at Lane Head, Craig takes the Arthur Cooper Mem. Shield. Tim also beat the last match record set only a month ago!
It should be a cracking finish in the league with 3 matches remaining and only 1 point separating the top 3, closely followed by couple of others.

After a nice start to the last of the winter series the weather made a turn for the worse. Snow moved in and it was extremely cold. By mutual agreement the match was shortened after around 3 hours had been fished. Only Mark and Craig had caught so it was a 'weigh off' with Mark coming out on top!

Once again, congratulations go to Craig, winning the league for the second year running.
I reported on the last set of results that Mick Gorton had already secured runner up in the league. However, as Mick pointed out, the summing up of the points was reported incorrectly and Simon Newsham had a further 2 points and with his win, this actually gives him runner up spot! Sorry Mick for that error but well done on 3rd spot.
