WITH the river flooded, Ilminster AA members headed for Dillington Pond for round six of the Royal Oak Winter league.

Conditions were atrocious although one side of the pond was more sheltered than the other.

Ashley Tomkins won with a lovely net of quality roach on caster, weighing 9lb 7oz from peg 2.

Robin Cox was second with 6lb 8oz from peg 18 and Scott Russell was third with 5lb 15oz from peg 16.

After six matches Jamie Rich still leads with seven points followed by Cox with eight and Bruce Hunt with ten.

The draw for next weekend’s match is at the Royal Oak between 8.30am and 9am.

Result: 1 Ashley Tomkins (Tackleuk) 9lb 7oz, 2 Robin Cox (Ilminster AA) 6lb 8oz, 3 Scott Russell (Tackleuk) 5lb 15oz.
