Storm Bella brought some torrential rain which increased our river levels.

A couple of extra feet of coloured water affected the sport on the River Steeping at Wainfleet.

Nige Butler was lucky enough to connect with a big hybrid and win the Bank Holiday open.

These matches will continue weekly dependent on future tiers and guidelines.

The next match is Friday, January 1 with the draw at 9am on Vicarage Lane.

With the river fining down nicely, sport will be much better on the forthcoming matches.
