On Sunday 6th April, Lymm AC’s match team fished their 1st round tie of the Angling Times Supercup competition, they had been drawn to face Warrington Blue. As Lymm were the home team,they had choice of venue and decided to fish the match at the Chester Lakes complex, with the match taking place on Ecclestone and Aldford Pool with eight anglers on each lake.
Warrington have a good reputation as a small fish and canal team, so the decision was made to fish the match at Chester Lakes as this is a carp orientated water where pellet fishing would be the main tactic, which would hopefully see the Warrington outfit out of their comfort zone.
Being a team match format, each angler only has to beat the person next to him (one versus two etc) the points are scored one for a win and two for a loss. Lymm had a brilliant result winning 8 points to 16 which meant it was a whitewash. So comprehensive was the victory, that only one angler on the Lymm team failed to double the weight of their opponent!
The individual pools for the match were to be paid out for the top two on each lake, Mark Dineley finished in top spot on Aldford Pool with 25lb 12oz, runner up was Jimmy Byrne 19lb 10oz. On Ecclestone pool Mark Davies was the clear winner with 105lb 3oz, this was an incredible 40lb more than the whole Warrington team combined! Colin Hall finished 2nd with 20lb 2oz.
Lymm AC would like to congratulate the team on what was a fantastic result for the team and club against local rivals and wish them all the very best of luck in the next round – well done all!
