ANTHONY Butterworth landed his first major trophy at Holbeach and District Angling Club on Sunday.

He caught a tench of around 2lbs and small skimmers, taken on worm and pinkie, for a net of 3lbs 15oz to win the Jubilee Cup at Cement Bridge.

That was just enough to see off Roger Smith, who had a 2lb carp to boost his overall weight to 3lbs 1oz. Third went to Andy Squance with 2lb 8oz.

Next match is the Wright Cup on Sunday at Main Road Bridge (draw 7.15am). It is waggler style fishing only.
