ANGLING: Stuart’s smart one-two


STUART SENIOR had a good week last week by winning first the Multi-Pond Match at Ravenfield and then the Kilnhurst and District AA match on Baker's Pond.

The former was held on the Bridge Pond where Stuart had one carp and some silver fish for a winning total of 16lbs 9ozs from peg 9.

Neil Humphries at peg 4 was second with a pole and maggot catch weighing 9lbs 3ozs with Graeme Herbert third with 7lbs 9ozs despite losing 15 carp!

Section winners were Dave Howitt and Lee Bowling.

Stuart's second success came with an 11lbs 14ozs catch from Baker's which left Tony Copnell's 10lbs 7ozs in second place and Don Senior's 9lbs 2ozs in third.

Paul Hunt was fourth with 8lbs 2ozs and Dave Howitt and Glynn Bramham joint fifth with 7lbs 12ozs. Section winners were Paul Hunt and Glynn Bramham.
