This match was fished on the famous Burton Joyce stretch of the Trent and despite a gin clear river and difficult wind, some excellent weights were recorded.

Out in front with a superb 19-1-0 catch of roach taken on pole and hempseed was Nottingham angler Mark Godfrey and this catch won him a place in the big money November final.

In A zone, Adam Richards came out on top with 13-14-0 of waggler caught roach and in C zone, match organiser Alan Henry ended a barren spell to also reach the final with a 9-13-0 catch of roach on the waggler.
