Tough going at Buttonhole as top rod Paul Billman in second visit bags 32lb and Pawel Nycz takes runner-up spot with 28lb 6oz




The Wednesday Tydd Gote open match fished on the North Level Drain produced a tie for first place between Archie Greenwood and John Taylor, both weighing in 8lb 4oz.

Pete Emery was third with 6lb 4oz. He caught on both waggler and short pole.
