Anglers Mail - - Front Page -

IT’S all-square be­tween Dren­nan Bor­don and Daiwa Dorking with two rounds re­main­ing in the Avon Val­ley Win­ter League.

Reign­ing champs Bor­don drew level with league new­comer titans Dorking after a re­sound­ing Round Four vic­tory on Gold Val­ley Lakes and the Bas­ingstoke Canal, with 71 points to 61.

An­thony Flint led Bor­don’s charge with a canal top score of 13 lb 15 oz 8 dr of punch-tempted skim­mers and roach from a peg at Ash Wharf.

Backed by sec­tion sec­onds for Andy Gre­gory and Mick Elly­att on the canal, and Terry Mol­loy, Andy Quarmby and Dave Lewis on the lakes, the teams are tied on six points apiece, with third­placed Arun MG a dis­tant third on 17.

“This was an im­por­tant win. The two re­main­ing rounds are both on the same venues, so any­thing can hap­pen,” said Dren­nan Bor­don skip­per Nick Jones.

Top weight from Gold fell to Marc Illing­worth (Mosella Home­stores) with 169 lb 8 oz of carp to 12 lb from Syn­di­cate Lake peg 123 on pel­let wag­gler and edge tac­tics.

■ An­thony Flint won Round Four with a knock­out bag of skim­mers and roach tempted on punch.
