Shalford Road Lakes 4th June 2022

We had 6 juniors attending this next Match and the weather played quite a large part in the results of the Match with bright sunshine on just one side of the Lake and this appeared to make all the difference in the results of the day.  That being said, all Juniors continued to fish all day, even if there were not that many feeding, but they learnt the lesson that you continue to fish to the whistle as the only Carp of the day was caught by Jasmine with less than 4 minutes to go. 

Jasmine Wilkinson                               11lb 5oz  including a 7lb 9oz Carp

Riley Joy                                               3lb 9oz

Marley Darch                                        3lb 0oz

Ronnie Darch                                        2lb 4oz

Guy Sinclair                                          1lb 6oz

Harry Moore                                         1lb 2oz

Parsonage Farm 21 May 2022

It was lovely to see this venue back to its former glory with high water level and loads of activity.  We had 6 junior members in attendance with sadly a couple of clashes stopping us having 8 again.  Eager to get on with the Match the juniors were raring to go and with lovely sunshine all day, this lovely venue did not disappoint and although the Tench were not as obvious than in previous visits, quite a few were still caught.  The results of the match were as follows

 Jasmine Wilkinson                               18lb 3oz

Riley Joy                                               16lb 3oz

Marley Darch                                        16lb 0oz

Fraya Dakin                                          11lb 3oz

Ronnie Darch                                         8lb 9oz

Harry Moore                                           3lb 8oz

 We would also like to thank Mike Harris from MH Fishing Tackle in Wickford who kindly donated a £10 gift voucher for the winner of this Match and also some other items to be given to the Juniors at later matches. Most generous

Hicks Farm 7th May 2022

The first match of the new Season and we were very happy for 8 Junior’s to be in attendance, including some new members, Guy Sinclair and Ronnie Darch. As in previous year’s you never know what to expect from this Venue but it did not disappoint even if the British weather had other ideas. We started the match in sunshine which developed into two nasty bouts of heavy rain with everyone’s umbrellas feeling the strain, but this did not deter any of the Junior’s who fished on throughout and the weights that were caught was quite unbelievable.  The end results were as follows

Riley Joy                               94lb 3oz

Marley Darch                     92lb 13oz

Fraya Dakin                         56lb 10oz

Guy Sinclair                         48lb 14oz

Hannah Dakin                    40lb 1oz

Harry Moore                      38lb 10oz

Jasmine Wilkinson           36lb 5oz

Ronnie Darch                     29lb 9oz

 We would like to also mention that despite having two leg operations recently, Riley managed this win on crutches and a shopping bag over his leg cast to protect from the downpours.  Now that’s dedication.


Also, well done to Guy and Ronnie, great results for their first Junior Match
