2020 Championship

Although this 2020 season was hampered at the start due to Covid 19, as soon as we got the all clear that these Junior Matches could go ahead, every one of our Juniors attending could not wait to get started.  We had another new member join our matches, Marley Darch and he has really come on leaps and bounds since his first match.  We have been to some incredible venues and at every single match the Junior members are excited and always, and I mean always, smiling.  It is wonderful to see them develop and nothing seems to put them off, be the catches big or small, they are always keen either way.  Sadly because of Covid 19 it has meant that we have not seen a couple of Junior members this season very much, however we have had a continuously good turnout for all of our matches this year and we hope that they are all able to return next season. 

Before we get to the results for the year, we would like to thank everyone at the Club who has helped in the donation of fishing equipment and tackle which has been used as prizes throughout the matches of the year and as is now the usual, we held back the big prizes for the end of season match, which this year was at Hicks Farm.  Your donations are greatly appreciated by all of the junior members who attended these matches.

 

The results of the season are as follows

 

Harry Moore                                      71lb 12oz

Jasmine Wilkinson                           67lb 0oz

Riley Joy                                               49lb 11oz

Hannah Dakin                                    43lb 13oz

Fraya Dakin                                         40lb 10oz

CONGRATULATIONS HARRY !!!!!!!!

 

Any donations would be greatly appreciated by the Junior Match Secretary for next year’s prizes.

Hicks Farm 3rd October

Well, we have reached the last match of the 2020 Season for our Junior members and weights for the Championship were very close going into this last event.  We had at least three Juniors with only a matter of a few pounds between them and this Venue was ideal for the Season finale as a good catch is nearly always made here and the Juniors love getting stuck in.  As usual they were eager to go and fishing throughout the horrendous rain that literally started and ended with the whistle.  Typical heaviest rainfall all year, it’s as if they were being tested to see if they would stick with it for the whole match and they did not disappoint any of us.  The results of the day were as follows, with some of the catches bigger that the Juniors and we had another close finish with a draw for 4th.

Riley Joy                                               28lb 7oz

Fraya Dakin                                         26lb 5oz

Harry Moore                                      26lb 4oz

Marley Darch                                     19lb 5oz

Hannah Dakin                                    19lb 5oz

Jasmine Wilkinson                           15lb 10oz

Windmill Lakes 19th September

With this being the penultimate Match of the 2020 season, all of our Juniors members were well aware that even with a venue that does not always produce large weights that there was all to play for.  We all had a heavy sideways wind for most of the day which did hamper some, but even so, all juniors fished the whole of the match from whistle to whistle as ever ounce counts as you can see from the tight weights.  The results of the day were as follows

Harry Moore                                      3lb 5oz

Leyla Mortimer                                 3lb 4oz

Riley Joy                                               3lb 1oz
