Pairs League R2 2013

Wednesday, 12 June 2013

Team consistency is what it takes to win and fine individual section wins by Duncan Edwards and Ian Gray was not enough to get their respective teams into a top two finish.  Alternating between the tip and the pole Duncan netted a succession of small carp and skimmers from unfancied peg 12 to have the overall top weight of more than 16lbs, Ian used traditional long pole to bag three skimmers and a few silvers for a weight just shy of 15lbs from peg 30.  However, it was that all important team consistency from Simon Allen and sub Paul Willshire that gave Me and My Boy the victory and the early lead in the championship.  The Tiscott Boys finally got thier act together and a 2nd place section from Tony Johns and a joint 5th from Paul Braund saw them sneak into second place by half a point from New Team Faint Heart who took the final podium spot.
