Sarah Taylor wins Spring Series

On Sunday 1st of June, the final match of the Lymm AC Juniors Spring Series took place at New Pool, Higher Whitley. The day itself brought bright sunshine, high temperatures and not a breath of wind. As such, the fishing suffered and the shoals of silvers failed to show in any numbers. The draw saw Richard Hansley draw the fancied peg and Kyle Hickman on the peg 4 times out of 6.

On his first match with us Yestyn Sephton drew peg 4 and fished across to catch an early skimmer to put him the lead. Not long after that, Josh Lyon managed to land a skimmer to draw level and keep the match close. Connor Higham managed to land a carp around half way into the match and hopes of another kept him interested.

In the series, long time front runner Sarah Taylor went into the match with a six point lead meaning anything about 5th place would give her the title. A tough match for Sarah saw a small brown goldfish but she could not put together any silver fish, meaning that she had a tense time as the scales come round. In the end a sixth place on the day was good enough to win the series.

 Our series winner Sarah Taylor who had a tough draw on the day ending up 6th with 2lb 3oz . Congratulations for another series win!
