Conditions at Shingle Street were good for Braintree Sea Angling Club members when they arrived for the last of their Summer League evening matches. The calm sea made fishing easy but it wasn’t until the light began to fade that the first bites came and then it continued to be slow all through the match. Barrie Senior fishing for sole with small hooks unexpectedly caught five thornback rays the largest 43cm across the wings, these together with four sole, a dogfish, a small smoothhound and three whiting gave him 501 fish points a comfortable margin over his nearest competitor Paul Drake. Paul had 173 points he also found a couple of small thornbacks together with a smoothhound, a dogfish and seven whiting. Third place was taken by Robin Joy with 83 points from his catch of 2 whiting and a dogfish. Despite only getting a 3rd place this match Robin won the Summer League amassing 48 match points from the seven matches. Paul Drake and Alan Porter shared second place with 26 match points apiece followed by Stephen Andrews with 21 points.
