Fishing was slow but the blow and black lug baits tipped with squid enticed a few fish for Paul Drake and Barrie Senior. Paul had the only codling of the match a 42 cm fish which together with six whiting and six dabs gave him 189 fish point. However, it was Barrie that won this closely fought duel with a catch of ten whiting and seven dabs for 220 fish points.
The second leg of the Mick Allen shield was fished at Aldeburgh sluice. This evening match was fished in clear conditions with a gentle offshore breeze to help casting. With only a small tide the fish were slow to feed and only a few were caught on the flood. However, the ebb saw a bit more activity and more fish hooked. Following on from his win in the first leg Paul Drake again took top spot with a codling 10 whiting and four dabs for 275 fish points to win the match and the Shield. Second place went to Robin Joy with seven whiting and four dabs for 179 points and in third place with 166 fish points from his 10 whiting and three dabs was Chris Leonard.
