Wrangle’s Alan Steadman carried his run of good form into the New Year, winning the first Skegness Pier Angling Club (SPAC) match of 2014, held in good conditions at Trunch Lane. Catches were poor, with Alan winning his third match on the trot with a dab and a decent whiting, for a total weight of 1lb 11oz. He also won the heaviest round fish prize with his whiting, which tipped the scales at 1lb 4oz. Close behind in second place was Kettering’s Jim Robinson, whose three dabs weighed in at 1lb 7½oz. His best dab was a 15oz specimen, which was worthy winner of the heaviest flatfish award. Skegness local Dave Bradley beached three small whiting to finish third with 12¾oz.
