Friday 21st June saw 20 of the country's top match anglers compete for the 2013 Middy Match Team Cup. The match, open only to Middy sponsored anglers, was contested at Sherwood Forest Fishery and with £500 and the huge silver cup up for grabs, all of the anglers were keen to win.

Anglers on the day included UK match record breaker Steve Gregory, Fish'O finalists Lee Thornton and Chris Kendall, as well as the UK Champion Marc Rodger, to name just a few.

The match took place on Holmedale Lake, which is an irregular-shaped 2.5 acres with islands and depths from 2ft up to 5ft, predominantly carp but with a few bream and roach too.

At the the end of the hotly contested match, it was southern rod Andrew Quarmby who came out on top with a weight of 133lb 3oz. Fishing shallow at 16m on pellet, he banked fish to double figures.

He took the title ahead of 2nd place Pete Upperton, who fell just short with a catch of 118lb 6oz all taken on meat on the deck at 14.5m.

3rd place went to Ben Fisk who, after a slow opening 2 hours, found some fish shallow to finish with 103lb 8oz.

Middy's Matt Middleton presented Andrew with the trophy and £500 cheque, marking yet another achievement on his angling profile.

The top 5 were:
- 1st: Andrew Quarmby - 133lb 3oz
- 2nd: Pete Upperton - 118lb 6oz
- 3rd: Ben Fisk - 103lb 8oz
- 4th: Simon Skelton - 96lb 6oz
- 5th: Chris Cameron - 82lb

Everyone at Middy would like to congratulate Andrew on this win.

In the days leading up to the match, we ran a competition asking you to predict the match winner. The competition winner is Mr Alan Hemmings from Rochdale, who has bagged himself a complete set of the new Middy Styrex pole floats, a Team 3G luggage set, twenty packets of popular Middy hooks including 83-13, 63-13, KM-1 and KM-2 and a Middy cap to go with it all. Congratulations!
