Dominant Daiwa Dorking rounded off the year with their forth major team success on Nottingham’s Newark Dyke on 24th/25th September 2011. Their emphatic victory over 9 of Britain’s top teams has surely guaranteed their number one UK status.
This World Club qualifier is now in its second year and is made up of teams finishing in the top ten of the Angling Trust Division One National Championships.
The Preston Innovation sponsored event saw Daiwa Dorking make a second day comeback changing a 7 point day one deficit into an 11 point win over Browning Hotrods leaving Starlets Kamasan and Barnsley and District trailing in their wake.
Daiwa Dorking will now represent England in the 2012 FIPSed World Club Championships which will take place next June in Portugal. The huge £7,000 winners cheque was presented to Daiwa Dorking team Manager, Steve Sanders by Preston Innovations Managing Director, Sarah Phoenix.
The weekend however started off with a fantastic performance by Browning Hotrods who were led from the front by their team captain Tim Nash. Tim’s first day catch of 7.600 kilos was just enough to push Barnsley’s Sam Wildsmith’s 6.700 kilos into second spot. The Hotrods team finished 7 points ahead of Dorking taking them into the lead on day one.
The match was fished to FIPSed rules with bloodworm and joker in limited amounts being used and it was single bloodworm on the hook that tempted two huge Trent barbel to take Tim’s offering.
Sam Wildsmith had a great day catching quality roach on long pole in his runner up spot.

It was the same again on the second day for Tim Nash when he drew the same peg as before. This time however, he had been pre warned so he set up to catch barbel from the start by feeding more hemp and casters and fishing lobworm and later on red maggot on the hook. This time 4 barbel and a 2.500 kilo bream gave Tim a weight of 15.640 kilos and a second day match and section win. Second on the day was Barnsley’s Dave Brooks with a weight of 10.040 kilos which included two huge barbel in his catch. With 2 section wins and a massive weight advantage Tim held off a great performance from Danny Grimsey who also had two section wins and a weight of 5.400 kilos.
However, it was to be Daiwa Dorking’s day as the team turned in another magic performance. Targeting the Trent’s small roach and gudgeon with a stunning bloodworm and joker attack the team surged to an 11 point lead whilst first day leaders Browning Hotrods slipped into seventh spot on the day and second overall.
