MEMBERS of Rivacre AC were in action over the weekend at Partridge Lakes, Culcheth, Warrington.

The weekend’s Ellesmere Port AC match was staged at Weston Pools, Oswestry. Competitors caught plenty of small stockies on the Canal Lake but had difficulty locating the bigger specimen.

Exactly 23lb of small tench and carp taken to pellet went to Jimmy Grimes, also of the Port, for second place. Steve Matthews and Kevin Dixon shared third spot, bagging 20lb of stockies.
