Stainsby lifts top prize in Tyne con­test

Sunday Sun - - Angling - BY PAUL ARM­STRONG

THE last big match of the year on the River Tyne last Sun­day, the Steve Roberts Me­mo­rial, was a re­sound­ing suc­cess with some catches show­ing ex­actly what the river is ca­pa­ble of for us coarse an­glers.

Teesside’s Paul Stainsby took the hon­ours with a fine 44lb 11oz net from the south bank near Cor­bridge. Ian Kir­ton fol­lowed with 36lb 8oz and Steve Lack­enby com­pleted the top three with 32lb 10oz. Ian Kir­ton also took the King of the Tyne tro­phy af­ter a great ef­fort in the rivers matches.

An amaz­ing £808 was raised for the Stroke As­so­ci­a­tion through match ticket sales, spon­sor­ship and a su­perb raf­fle on the day.

The sec­ond round of the Eden Grange Win­ter League saw a good turnout and good weights. Dy­lan Blyth led the way with 80lb 9oz, ahead of Calum Parker with 78lb 4oz and Bill Richards with 69lb 5oz.

Some good nets are com­ing from He­bron Lakes near Mor­peth where the dam wall in par­tic­u­lar is pro­duc­ing some nice mixed bags. He­bron has also re­duced the price of its day ticket for the win­ter to £5.

The con­sis­tent John Dry­den took the win at the An­gel of the North’s Look­out Lake last week­end with a cred­itable 149lb 5oz, ahead of Ethan Bradley with 77lb 13oz and 68lb 2oz.

Hartle­pool & District have an­nounced that the date of their an­nual gen­eral meet­ing will be on the 27th of this month at the Ward Jack­son Cricket Club start­ing at 19.00 hrs. This same club have a match on Til­ery to­day, meet at 0900.

Don’t for­get that the Der­went Cham­pi­onship take place next Sun­day – tick­ets are in the usual out­lets and are sell­ing fast!
