ANGLING: STUART Brown just can't stop winning, writes JOHN STUBBS.
After his triumph in Ireland and on his return, as I reported last week, the Weaverham ace won the Winsford Flash Fishery Open again on Sunday.
Luck played its part - he drew one of four currently hot pegs benefiting as the fish spawn and move into the Weaver - and took bream and skim-mers worth 18-6-0. The second and third came from nearby - Brent Pier-point 13-6-0 and Terry Kettle 11-14-0.
Anthony King won the event the previous day, the Protack Barlows teamster drawing well and taking 24-12-0, to beat Carl Fawley (Edgeley Sports) 22-9-0, Shaun Pilsbury (Whizzo) 18-14-0, Terry Crosby (Bolton AC) 10-11-0 and Kevin Hill (Garbalino) 10-10-0.
Harold Jones won the latest Winsford Veterans match on Bay Malton's Meridian Complex with 35-12-0, with the next three well consoled by their catches - Eric Gillett 27-6-0, Tony Roberts 27-4-0, Stan Aston 22-8-0 - before weights fell away and Jim Garston 7-10-0 and Ian Alcock 9-0-0 were section winners.
Rudheath-Bowling Green's match on the Flash Fishery on Wednesday was won by Frank Slater on peg 20 with 4-14-0, from Jimmy Young 3-13-0 and Royce Weedall 2-3-0. nWinsford Vets are at Border Fish-eries on Tuesday; Rudheath BG at Winsford Flash tonight, and the Fish-eries opens again on Saturday and Sunday.
