Joey Griffin and Bronson Arme booked their places in the next March after the latest round of qualifiers at Lake View Fishery.
Third-place finishes were enough to get through, but the weights varied with Griffin taking a little less than 50lb from the marina lake at Wednesday’s qualifier, and Arme netting more than 60lb from canal on Saturday.
Griffin was back again on Saturday and this time claimed an £80 golden peg bonus after taking top weight on serpent, and fifth place overall.
The match wins went to the already-qualified Ben Checkley (64lb) and Andy Searle who took the week’s biggest match weight of 114lb to finish a whopping 46 pounds clear of his nearest challenger.
Steve Haywood was among the prizes once more with a dominant victory at the Sunday Open as his winning weight of 99lb was more than 50lb clear of the rest.
