Bob Greenbury was in unstoppable form as he won both of last week’s qualifiers in the winter series.
He booked his place at next March’s final by topping last Wednesday’s match with a haul of 86lb 8oz caught from peg eight on canal using pellet.
The Drennan angler maintained his winning form at Saturday’s match, with 58lb enough to give him top spot.
He finished just a few pounds ahead of Steven Pretty and Michael Elliott who tied for second place and will both fish in the final.
Carl Sutton took the week’s biggest match weight at the Sunday Open with 104lb 9oz, using caster shallow and maggot down the edge.
He also earned a £190 bonus for winning from the golden peg, canal 15.
