Maver Match This qual­i­fier Daiwa Hallcroft Fish­ery (110 pegs)

MATT Arnold (above) bagged his place in the fi­nal for the sec­ond year run­ning, thanks to a 161-1-0 to­tal.

The Lin­colnshire an­gler qual­i­fied last year at the venue and showed it was far from a fluke as he worked his way to the win­ning weight from peg 16 on the is­land of Bridge Pool.

Start­ing shal­low on caster, he soon had 50lb in the net, but it was a switch to paste in the mar­gins that re­ally got him mo­tor­ing and helped him find some giant carp to 17lb.

Chris Kitchin was re­ally strug­gling to line up the fish from peg 74 on the outer bank of Moat Pool.

But the shoals rocked up in the mar­gins in the last hour and he took ad­van­tage of this late bonus to bag up in style, amass­ing 120-1-0 to take sec­ond place.

Re­sult: 1 M Arnold, Lincs, 161-1-0; 2 C Kitchin, Leeds, 120-1-0; 3 P Wright, Halkon Hunt, 104-6-0; 4 O Stringer, Leeds, 95-15-0; 5 F Gianocelli, Pre­ston In­no­va­tions, 85-10-0; 6 C Owen, Mexbor­ough, 83-10-0.
