Phil Williams on Top at Shrewsbury!


Photo qualifiers Shrewsbury

Match organiser Phil Williams proved that local knowledge can pay dividends after drawing one of the fancied pegs on a fast rising Severn at Shrewsbury.

Phil booked his place in the big money November final for a shot at the £13,000 top prize with a 14-5-8 catch of roach, dace and perch from peg 47 in the Quarry length.

Second place went to Nick Young with 11-10-0 of roach and dace from peg 45. Nick used similar tactics to the winner.

Further down the length, John Small took third position with 9-5-8 from peg 58, ahead of Rob Quinn at peg 59 with 8-8-8.

Andy Jones had the best catch in the downstream zone with 7-15-8, a weight that earned him a place in the final. Narrowly missing out by just half an ounce in this zone was Adey Piggott with 7-15-0.

Winner of the County Ground zone was Clive Branson with 7-8-0 of mainly bleak.

Special thanks go to Phil Williams and Andy Jones for organising a very well run qualifier.
