Match – Shalford Ponds – 30th September 2017
Last match of the Season for the Juniors and although we had planned for our two main contenders to go head to head at the last match, sadly at the last minute Andrew could not make it so Hannah was left alone to show us all how it is done.
Hannah has continued to improve on each Match she attends and is a great asset to the Club. She fished throughout the day even with the very slow pace on this occasion and her results were as follows. Attached are some photo’s of her in action and collecting her Prizes with her Dad, Jay.

Junior Match – Windmill Lakes – 9th September 2017
Swap round with juniors for this Match, this time Andrew couldn’t make it but Hannah could and with the guidance of her Nan and Grandad, Wendy and Alan, as soon as the whistle went, she was off, going after the fish with her normal excitement of fishing in another match. Yet again Hannah’s starting comment at the draw was ‘Catch me if you can, I’m going to beat you all’ and yet again she did. She was the only one to catch a nice Carp of 4lb plus a nice amount of silver fish with Nan counting them as she went. 70 fish in total and her finishing weight was as follows

Junior Match – Bicknacre – 19th August 2017
Sadly, due to family commitments we only had one Junior attend this Match. Hopefully with a little more interest the numbers will start getting better. Andrew Strutt attended with his Grandad Brian and regardless of the fish caught they always have a great day. Andrew choose a swim over the opposite side of the lake, but sadly he only had silver fish and the Bream and Carp were hard to lure in. He still enjoyed the day and his result was as follows

Match – Straits Mill – 5th August 2017
Sadly again we had only one Junior attending this Match, Hannah Dakin, although she was ready to challenge all of the Ladies as well. Before the Match started we presented to Hannah a Fishing Box which had been donated to the Club and before you knew it she was setting up to use it straight away. The fish were evident in her swim before we even started the Match and even when the heavens opened with a downpour of rain for the last hour of the Match, Hannah continued to fish and at the end, she was right, she had beaten all of the Ladies present and had won overall with the largest weight of the day, which was a nice selection of fish. You can see from the attached photos Hannah was eager to check her weight against the Ladies and receive here prizes for attending too.

We had a new junior attending this Match, Hannah Dakin, who has been fishing for a while with family members but now wanted to start fishing matches within the Club. She really enjoyed the match and was smiling the whole day. She caught silverfish and a small carp with her finishing weight as follows and here are some photos of her fishing and collecting her prizes.
Well Done and Welcome Hannah!!
