Shakespeare Superteam's Leigh Gardner storms to victory in the Abu Garcia Wychavon qualifier thanks to a last-gasp Hampton Ferry tench. Hampton Ferry, Evesham | August 13 | 69 FishedIt was a case of making the last fish count for Shakespeare Superteam stalwart Leigh Gardner, who took a 3lb tench in the dying stages of the match to clench victory. Drawn on peg 57, Leigh started his match fishing a whip for gudgeon, an approach that has seen him frame numerous times over recent weeks. After two hours and with a couple of pounds in the net, things went quiet, which prompted Leigh to move onto his long pole bloodworm line.

Team Daiwa top at the Glebe. Seventy-two anglers fished in not the kindest of conditions in this years Angling Trust Masters, with little wind on many of the lakes making the resident fish more difficult to catch. This top class field still managed some exceptional weights however, with 30 anglers weighing in more than 100lbs each. Top individual on the day was Match Fishing Magazine's Joe Carass fishing for Press Pack with a magnificent weight of 198lbs 14 oz.
