Eight teams of eight anglers fished the match which was held at Aston Park .

A delighted Neil Nicolson said: “We had a fantastic overall team performance on the day with two section winners , three seconds in sections, a third, fourth and a sixth – a very solid performance.”

The team included section winners Danny Slack and Daniel Richardson, Macualey Duke, Shane Seely, Reece Kiernon, Chelsey Jeffcoate, Ryan Whilton, and Cameron Cross.

Neil added: “Thanks to the team for all their hard work on the day, and the rest of the junior squad for all their work in practice, which helped me come up with the right team selection and plan.”

He also expressed gratitude to Alex Mitchel and his team at Aston for all their help and support, and Geoff Mawby at Gateford Angling for his help with supplying bait for the match.
