Brian Greenbury and Joey Griffin made it through to the Middy Xtreme Autumn/Winter Final next March after a quiet week at Lake View Fishery.
Third place and a haul of just 7lb 5oz was enough to take Joey Griffin through on Saturday as cold temperatures and rain all day made for a hard day’s fishing.
Andy Searle, already qualified, won the match with 44-05-00, catching F1s and carp on pellet, maggot and bread.
Greenbury topped a small field on Wednesday with 47lb 1oz, taken from peg 12 on the serpent lake.
