Furzton might not have been on top form for Sunday's charity open – but the event did raise £460 for the children's speech therapy department at MK General.

Ever the star, Mike Buchwalder took top spot with 36-15 of bream on the tip followed by Terry Davies on 27-9 as Maurice Williams had 24-9 and Pete Patton crept into the top four with 23-11.

The prizes included one for best roach weight, and Steve Davies claimed that with 14-11 of redfins.

Organised by Paul Chapman, with help from Kevin Osborne, the match was a 42 peg sell-out.

NO matter others weren't doing so well elsewhere, Chris Denton had quite night on Lodge with eight doubles from a dozen runs.

Ben Hewer had an extremely photogenic 16-6 fully-scaled mirror from Tear Drops and Terry Martin a 13lb mirror as Graham Cook had four carp to 14-2 on Newport's Big Pit.

A better result in some respects was Nikki Bolton's 16lb common from the canal near Three Locks.

Bradwell Lake Regular Radik – reporting through Willards – has boosted his tench PB to 7-8, and Chris Sawbridge had Big Pit bream going 7-10 and 7-6. Ian Burt, reported by Waters Edge, had a nice bream and silvers net from Linford's Canal Lake.

Getting out on the Ouse early, before the sun comes up, Phil Mapp continues to net 5lb+ chub. Dominic Carolan had a nice brace, too.

Stalking chub Matt Jones spotted one disappearing under a weed clump, dropped his paste in where he thought it would emerge...and landed a 5lb+ bream.
