Woody’s Report

Unfortunately John Woodham’s Concessionary/Match article arrived just after the soon to be distributed winter newsletter had been printed.  The article is reproduced here:

Hi Lads and Lassies this is your good looking sec “Woody” reporting in.   Well I hope you all enjoyed our club and concessionary matches last year, we did have some excellent attendances and I hope they get better. I am sorry I had to change a few booked  venues last year but I did my best to let you all know, I wish I could control the weather.   Some excellent trophy matches were fished in 2009 and I thought I would mention a few names that took the honours. Allen Freeman, Vic Dadd, Steve Root, Kelvin Willis and greedy Dave Harley who managed to bag two. A new cup was presented to the club last year “The Stanley Farrer Cup” this was fished on the canal at the Golf Coarse stretch and was convincingly won by L Druce. All who remembered Stanley Farrer remember him as a gentleman Angler, and thanks must go to his wife Joan, who also enjoyed the sport.   Thanks to all those members who have supported the match scene and I hope we have a better year this year. One more thank you must go to your head bailiff Kim Naish who on many occasions cleared the swims so we could hold a match.   I hope to see you on the bank in 2010.   Full nets  - Woody.

Hardy match anglers

Thank you to Peter Beckett for sending in three photos that he took recently of the league open match fished on the canal on Sunday 20th December.  It takes more than a bit of ice and snow to put these hardy souls off a days fishing.

The other 2 photos can be found on the match results page although the result of the match is yet to be submitted.  I imagine it was hard going!
