Garbolino Lindholme Elite retain coveted Team Commercial


Garbolino Elite Team Commercial 2018

The Angling Trust Team Commercial once more ended in an incredibly close affair with the top four teams only separated by seven points. This year’s competition was improved with the addition of Woodhouse Grange to both accommodate for the further demand, and also to give anglers more space at Lindholme. This certainly seemed to pay dividends, with all the top five anglers on the day breaking the magical ton barrier!

On an Individual front Josh Turbill (Maver North West Spotted Fin) made the most of Bennys Peg 60 and took top spot with 52.680Kg. Josh put together a cracking bag of F1s, fishing pellet on short pole and down the edge. Stu Fotheringham (Marukyu Midlands 1) took second place with 50.310Kg from Bonsai peg 62, and Ladies England International Kayleigh Smith (Browning Team Ossett) took an impressive third place with 46.730Kg from Bennys peg 10.

On the team front congratulations once again to local team Garbolino Lindholme Elite, who retained their Team Commercial title after totaling 100 points. Their top rods on the day were Alexander Dockerty and John Allerton who both recorded section seconds. However, it was their consistency which was the key, with eight anglers making top-five positions.

Coming in a worthy second were Maver North West Spotted Fin who ended up with 95 points, with Lee Bennett, Roger Priestley, Paul Balmforth and Josh Turbill all taking their sections to keep them ahead of the chasing pack.

There was a two-way tie for third position, which is often the case in these highly competitive matches, but on weight countback Browning Team Ossett just pipped Drennan Barnsley Blacks to the post: 200.840kg to 182.110kg.

It must also be mentioned that Drennan Barnsley Blacks, Dynamite Derbyshire Angling Federation and UK Armed Forces all had anglers disqualified for fishing the wrong pegs. We’d like to thank all the captains, anglers, and teams for their support on the decision.

The Angling Trust would like to thank Neil Grantham and his team at Lindholme, Mike & Alison at Woodhouse Grange and Jemma Phillips for all their help in making this a successful match.
