This was the penultimate leg of this years Houghton Cup which has been hotly contested between Colin Fowler and Tony Crossley. The catches in this match were mainly made up of Chub with the biggest being around 3lb which was caught by match winner Lee Wakeman. Lee finished up with a respectable total of 10lb exactly. Second spot went to Peter Hole with 3lb 2oz and third spot went to Stuart Cottingham.
Unfortunately, the contest for overall top spot was a bit of an anti climax as the 2oz Tony Crossley managed to put on the scales was enough to clinch it as it gave him 4 points against overall second placed Colin Fowler’s blank.
