IVAN MARKS MEMORIAL (SUN)
River Witham, Kirkstead (48 pegs) Sadly, the River Witham wasn’t in form for this memorial match run in honour of match angling’s greatest son. Despite thick weed proving troublesome, RAF Garbolino man Baz Bright won the day thanks to a trio of bream backed by perch at peg 45, where he fished the groundbait feeder and long pole with chopped worm and caster to weigh in 17-0-0. Second spot went to Chris Turner with 8-12-0. Result: 1 B Bright, RAF Garbolino, 17-0-0; 2 C Turner, West Mids, 8-12-0; 3 C Mackay, Lincoln, 7-10-0; 4 E Hedgecock, Redditch, 5-5-0.
