Dave Clayton drew peg 125 beside the footbridge on the Nottingham waterway and tempted 6lb 9oz of roach and perch, alternating bloodworm and maggot on several long pole lines.

Rob Parker was a close second with 6lb 5oz 8dr including two specimen perch to 2lb on pinkies, plus back-up roach on bread punch, from peg 16 above the flyover bridge.

Leicester’s 21 point victory tally puts them top at this early stage with 3 points ahead of Three Counties, Shakespeare Bait-Tech and Team 1779 who are tied for second on 6 points apiece.
