With 8 matches in the season, these matches are held at good venue’s and are very enjoyable.

To book a place at these Matches, details of which are all shown on the 2019/2020 fixture list in your handbook, or for any queries please call Nick Mitchell on 07970 606558

Attendance to these matches would be greatly appreciated and would help save the events from cancellation.

Mixed Pairs Match - Dodds Farm

Sadly again due to health issues and work commitments, we only had two pairs at this match.  The extreme weather meant that the whole day was tough going with the Carp bathing themselves in the middle of the Lake but not really interested in taking any bait with only one Carp being caught within the match.  Well done to everyone for putting up with the heat and the results of the day were as follows

 Wendy & Alan Upson                                     21lb 2oz

Kathy Chisnall & Nick Mitchell                      19lb 1oz

Mixed Pairs Match - Shalford Road Ponds

Sadly again due to hospital attendance and other circumstances we only had two Pair attending this match but we all persevered with all types of bait and fishing at different points of the Lake meant quite different results at the end of the day. Selection of Rudd, Roach, Perch and Carp were caught.

Kathy Chisnall & Nick Mitchell                     14lb 8oz

Wendy & Alan Upson                                     4lb 11oz

Parsonage Farm

Sadly due to illness and other commitments, we only had two Ladies at the Match at this great venue.  As always everything has been well kept and looked great after with some additional swims being built, so well done to everyone involved in this.  As the weather was really hot all day this did make the Tench, which are usually so obvious at this venue, few and far between so a lot of the fish caught were Roach, Rudd and Perch. 

 Kathy Chisnall                                                    20lb 13oz

Wendy Upson                                                         8lb 9oz

Mixed Pairs Match - Hicks Farm

The 2019/2020 season has begun with a Mixed Pairs Match held at Hicks Farm.  Thanks to Robin and the work party team for their continued work, the Venue shone brightly in the sun and also glistened in the rain.  The fishing was mixed at different points of the Lake with some Pairs catching better than others.  We were joined by a new Pair at this Match and we welcome Nigel and Francesca Warwick, a Father and Daughter team.  The results of the day were as follows

Nigel & Francesca Warwick                                          150lb 7oz

Kathy Chisnall & Nick Mitchell                                     76lb 11oz

Debbie & Kevin O’Flynn                                                34lb 15oz

Wendy & Alan Upson                                                      25lb 1oz
