An out of form Royal Berkshire fishery was our host for round ten of the championship series and it was Perry Fairclough who took the honours with just 27-1-8, a catch which consisted of four carp and a few small roach. The match got off to a very slow start and the only real excitement early doors was a big carp hooked and lost by a furious Richard Day. With ninety minutes of the match gone, Perry had only a couple of small roach in his net, so he decided to fish a small cage feeder tight to the island, a move which provided two carp in two casts (including one of 14-3-0) and took him from zero to hero. With no further action across to the island, he switched back to the pole and caught a further two carp in the latter stages in the margins to go on to record his second win of the championship series and move into second in the table. In the next peg was Stuart Pollmer who put in another excellent performance to take his second runner up spot in succession. Stuart also started slowly apart from a cracking 1-12-0 perch caught short, but his persistence fishing long at sixteen metres to the island paid off as the carp started to show in the latter stages, and one hooked just before the final whistle sealed the result for him. Ron Chenery took third place with some late carp from down the edge and the section winners were Keith Gibson, Mick Catten Jnr and Stuart Pollmer (by default).
