Over-60s Match Series – final results
The final match at Wedgehill (Middle Pond – Thursday 17th Sept) produced the best catches of the Series with 370lb of very fit carp weighed-in by the 14 members attending. Dave Perkins continued his run of good form, winning on the day with 56lb 14oz on method feeder. Dave White used the same approach for 40lb and third on the day was Richard Dury (35lb 6oz), also taken on the method feeder.
Dave Perkins finished the series with an impressive 3 section wins and 2 seconds in the five matches and had the luxury of dropping a second placing as his ‘worst’ result to become a worthy winner with 5 points. By also winning the annual Veterans Match, Dave achieved the ‘double’ this year, after retiring as Fisheries Manager to ‘concentrate on his fishing’!. Dave White also had some outstanding results but had to settle for runner-up spot for the second year running (6 points). Jim Haskell was overall third (7 points) and never dropped below third in his section in all five matches. Members thanked Mick Maidment for organising the matches in an efficient and friendly atmosphere and now look forward to meeting up again in 2016.
