It may have been April Fools Day, but the Ewings weren't kidding anyone when they drew known aquarium area on the Rugby Bank, Broadwater on the Lads 'n' Dads match and turned it yet again into a Team Ewing benevolent as they pulled away from the field with 8 carp for 79lbs.
Admittedly they did draw where everyone said the fish had been congregating recently, but they still had to catch them...which they did. Ewing the 'Younger" (aka Mikey) did manage to upstage his dad with a beautiful 18lb common, while dad had the most fish!
It may have been only the Ewing 'clan' that sacked up, but there where others doing their best to narrow the gap. The pair who got closet where Team Newnham, consisting of Roger and Ellis who weighed a total of 24lb 4ozs. The rest did their best to put up a good show.
This was the first Dads 'n Lads match of the year, so there's plenty of time for everyone else to get their revenge!
The next match will be at Richardson Lake on May 13th, so don't forget to book in and have a crack at the Ewings!
