The match was fished over a five hour period at the club’s Willingham Road Lake. The weather for the match was warm, overcast and the odd shower in the latter part of the match.

On Wednesday September 5, nine members turn up for the draw at 8am to fish the six–hour match for the Jack Larder Memorial Trophy at the Willingham Road Lake.

The weather conditions for the day were overcast at the start and then very sunny and hot, which affected the fishing feeding in the latter part of the match.

After six hours of fishing, Dave Appleyard, fishing pole on peg 28, took the trophy with 6lb 11oz, second place went to B Chambers with 6lb 6oz, fishing pole and feeder, third place went to D Humphreys, 5lb 7oz, fishing feeder.
