ANGLING: Wind assists Darren’s day

DARREN Crofts made light work of gale-force winds to land Holbeach and District Angling Club’s Herewood Trophy on Sunday.

Fishing at nine metres using maggot or pinkie, Crofts took a good stamp of roach and perch to finish with 7lbs 8oz and take the title.

Jonathan Stubley and Dave Corcoran were level-pegging in joint second behind him, having both finished with a net of 5lbs 1oz.

This Sunday sees the Lewis Cup at Cement Bridge (draw 7.15am).
