Round 4 was held on the Kennet & Avon Canal at Upper Dunmill, Hungerford. Mild conditions meant the canal fished well, with lots of small roach showing and better fish on the end and feature pegs.

In first place was Sensas A4’s Steve Pawson with a level 12lb. He drew the bottom end peg and had a couple of decent perch on pole fished worm to go with loads of roach on pinkie over groundbait. Top Tackle’s Mark Harrington was just behind with 11lb 2oz. He drew near the wires near Hungerford Station and had quality roach on pinkie over squatt feed.
The opposite side of the wires was third-placed Martin Phipps with an all-roach 10lb 11oz at four metres with pinkie over groundbait.

That result helped his Drennan Oxford team win the day with 40 points. Drennan ODAA were 2nd on 33 points and Sensas A4 3rd on 32 points.
