SIZZLING Steve Pell delivered a red-hot display to land Holbeach and District Angling Club’s Curry Cup.
Pell’s net of 11lb 10oz was enough to clinch top spot at Cement Bridge, but he was pushed all the way by Andrew Goodger.
The second-placed angler managed a healthy catch of 11lbs 6oz. John Ivatt finished third with 8lb 5oz.
Next match is at Sharpe’s Bridge this Sunday (draw 7.30am).
