Andy Power has just added the prestigious UK Championship to his already bulging trophy cabinet!After a tense fourth and final round at an out-of-sorts Barston Lakes, all Andy needed was a fourth in section to take the coveted trophy. That was narrowly enough for the Preston Innovations hot prospect to pip Garbolino-backed Richie Hull, thanks to his superior weight advantage of a whopping 241. 423kg over four heats!Richie managed a section third on the final day and was left cursing his luck as just another two ounces would have seen him finish a point higher and the 2013 champion. Alas, it wasn't to be and he had to settle for an almost as impressive runners-up spot, ahead of a string of top names.

Jon, who also won the contest back in 2011, pocketed a £3,000 winner's cheque, after a late barbel saw him clinch victory by a margin of just 5oz. Jon caught the barbel on a piece of worm, fished over a bed of chopped worm and caster. He explained: “At first I wasn’t sure what I had hooked, I thought it was an eel or a tench – when I saw it was a barbel I had my heart in my mouth! Fortunately, I managed to scoop it, and with my bloodworm fish it proved enough to win on the day.
