Fishing fanatics raised £600 for charity by hosting a match in memory of Turves man, Craig Kent.
Craig lost his battle with cancer in 2008 and since then, his friends and family have held the annual match at Kingsland Fishery, raising thousands for charity in the process.
The sell-out match saw Ian Darrington (159-12oz) and Tony McGregor (132-04) take the title, with Dave Wills (103-12) and Richard Humphrey (74-00) in second and Dave Rawlings (137-00) and Steve Marsh (53-00) in third.
The ‘UKMatchAngler.com’ sponsored shield for the highest weight went to Ian Darrington and the Tony Larham Shield for the biggest fish landed on the day was won by Dave Wills with a carp of 15-00.
All proceeds were donated to the East Anglian Air Ambulance. A spokesman said: “Thanks go to all that helped on the day and the numerous people who sponsored the match in one way or another.”
