Boatyard 13 Singles KO 3rd round – Sunday 7th January 2018

A very happy John Burton with his 1st win of the year

A bright cold day with a biting northeasterly wind was the weather which greeted the 14 anglers who arrived at the Yards this Sunday for the first match of 2018. With Colin Jonas laid low with the flu thanks must go to Dave Agass for running this Sunday’s Match. John Burton finally drew a flyer and made the most of it with 10lb 10oz from the first peg up the left side of the Gate Basin. This side was definitely the place to be as next peg up was Dennis Willis with 7lb 6oz for 2nd and then the on the next 2 pegs were John Higginson and Dave Dearman who both had 5lb 13oz for equal 3rd. The Christmas Wizard, aka Trevor Dodson, was on the big basin this week and had to make do with 6th place overall but he did win his 5 peg section! Still, there were no blanks this week so things must be getting better (maybe).
