AT/Preston Junior National League – Round 4
October 28th 2017



After an overnight frost sport was unsurprisingly poor for this final round. Therefore it was always going to be a draw bag day, which would decide the outcome and, so it proved, with anyone of five juniors capable of lifting the league winner’s trophy. Ultimately the winner on the day came from peg 15, but only finished 2nd in the league. Ethan Etherington had to drop one score and was hoping his near rival, Callum Hutchins, would find flyer peg 13 in poor form. Unfortunately for Ethan, Callum found skimmers and a tench to weigh in 8lb 3ozs, only 3ozs below Ethans best weight of 8lb 6ozs so took 2nd on the day. When the final scores where added up and the worst score taken away, it was Callum who took the title by a clear 4pts from Ethan.

Third on the day was 8 year old Michael Ewing who, true to form, drew peg 11, much to his dad’s pleasure, but it was only in the last 90 minutes that Michael actually caught. He finished with three bream/skimmers for 7lb 11ozs, and with his lowest score dropped, Micheal could only finish the league in 4th place, still a great result for one so young. Fourth, and the final catcher on the day, was Tom Clark on end peg 5, who had a tench, small carp and skimmer for 5lb 4ozs, but more importantly was that when his lowest score was taken away, he finished with total of 50 points to take the final podium place.

Thanks to Preston Innovations and Angling Trust for running this competition which, we hope, will continue in the coming years.

Result:
Ethan Etherington 8-6-0
Callum Hutchins 8-3-0
Micheal Ewing 7-11-0
Tom Clark 5-4-0
