Messingham A Team Win The Drennan Teams Of Five

The Drennan Teams Of Five event held at Messingham Sands on Good Friday saw 70 anglers enjoy consistent sport with an average catch of over 60lb per man.

Although a cold wind made things uncomfortable for some, the fish fed well. Weight played a decisive role in the outcome, as there was a tie on points for the top places.

Individually, Ken Pacey led the way with 137lb of carp from peg 53 on the Islands Lake. Steve Ellis came up trumps with his paste approach from peg 13 on the Swan Pond with 129lb of carp and Steve Donaghue wasn’t too far behind with 121lb from peg 26 on the Little Swan.

The Teams saw a tie on points between Scunthorpe Tackle and Messingham A. Both scored 22 points with Messingham claiming the spoils with a 446lb total weight.

Third and Fourth places also tied, each with 30 points, with Barnsley just pipping Grimsby by less than 10lb to take the honours.
