Tydd Gote Angling Club: double top for Dave Simmonds at Main Road matches
Tydd Gote Angling Club: It was double top for in-form Dave Simmonds at Main Road as he followed up his victory at the Wednesday Open with another comfortable win at the Sunday Club match.
Drawn end peg 22, Dave had a 5lb bream in the first five minutes and added perch and rudd for a 6lb 11oz total that was well clear of the chasing pack.
There was a real tussle for the minor places with ounces separating Archie Greenwood on peg 26, Steve Borrett on peg 25 and Andrew Kilby on peg 27.
Greenwood made a quick start but was pegged back by Kilby as the roach moved down a peg.
Greenwood enticed them back but could only watch as they moved onto peg 25 for the final hour where Borrett almost made up the deficit only to lose out by an ounce, Greenwood taking second with 3lb 13oz, Borrett third on 3lb 12oz and Kilby fourth with 3lb 10oz.
