BARFORD LAKES FESTIVAL
Warren Martin showed why he is one of the most feared faces at the Norfolk fishery as he took the title. The Matrix-backed angler began the two-day event in fine fashion with a section and lake win, taking 67-12-0 from the Match Lake, and then went on to bag second in section with 87-7-0 for a threepoint total. His total weight of 155-3-0 proved vital as runner-up Ken Pearson had the same points score but fell shy on weight, recording 144-0-0 overall.
