The weather forecast was for rain and strong winds and it didn’t disappoint! With a howling westerly wind there was always going to be damage inflicted somewhere and Trevor Dodson’s pole was the first casualty with 3 sections being broken before the match even started.
Despite the weather 11 anglers lined up for the draw and everybody caught fish. Denny Hammond was on the left hand end of the Gate Basin and ran out the winner with 7lb 1oz. Just a few fish behind was Ian Holmes who was on the right hand end of the Gate and had 6lb 8oz for 2nd place.
Colin Jonas had a 3lb+ bream in the big basin which gave him his section and despite his broken pole Trev Dodson won the singles KO weighing in 1lb 7oz against my miserable 12oz on the next peg!
Next week is the Ludham Cup, the last points match of the winter series but there is no way anyone will be catching Mr Dodson this year, congratulations to him on winning the Sutton Cup.
Maybe the weather will be better next week!!??…………….See you there
