A TREMEN­DOUS £936 was raised for the can­cer ward of Not­ting­ham City Hos­pi­tal after this an­nual event, held in mem­ory of larger-than-life late Trent le­gend Frank.

Con­trol­ling clubs Coors AC, Bur­ton Mu­tual and Fer­ry­bridge AC do­nated the peg fees, and with hand­some prizes from

sev­eral tackle com­pa­nies, it was a good day all-round.

On the fish­ing front, river ace Tony Mar­shall led the way with 29-8-0 of roach and dace.

The Shake­speare man drew on the golf course sec­tion and fished caster over ground­bait at 14m for his mixed net of sil­vers.

Ca­dence rod Andy Dixon was next from the same area with 20-4-0 of roach and dace. He too used ground­bait and caster or mag­got on the long pole.

Re­sult: 1 T Mar­shall, Shake­speare/Bait-Tech, 29-8-0; 2 A Dixon, Ca­dence, 20-4-0; 3 C Tal­bot, Match Box ,18-9-0;4 R Wood ,18-3-0; 5 P Gould­ing, Worskop, 18-0-0; 6 W Swin­scoe, Dren­nan/Bait-Tech, 17-8-0.
