Adam Playford was the top angler in the Bait-Tech Teams of Three event at Westwood Lakes on Sunday.

The Westwood All Stars member finished with a weight of 71lbs 14oz, after opting for pellet and corn, which was enough to tempt the carp in for his impressive return.

Jimmy Brooks was in second, a long way behind on 49lbs 12oz.

Third place went to Rick Tweedle, who caught 39lbs 14oz of fish.

Barry Hankins won Thursday’s over 50s Open with a haul of 37lbs 12oz, enough to see off Janausz Mkauski (12lbs).
