The annual charity match raised £164, the Associatioin does not yet have a nominated cause to support this year and the Committee, who will be meeting in early September, would like to hear your suggestions as to what the cause(s) may be. As for the match itself the big fish failed to show in numbers, possibly put down by the recent rain, and it was bags of silvers and skimmers that dominated with the odd slab. Dave Allen won the trophy taking a succession of skimmers and roach from the middle of the Second Basin throughout the four hours for a near 9lb bag. Len Codlin and Kevin Hill were seperated by only a few ounces for second and third spot from the Lower Wharf. There were some fine individual fish with Dave Allen taking a speciman roach and Wayne Burnard netting a brace of 1lb+ perch. A mix up at the draw saw Adrian Hill and Simon Allen rule themselves out as they both took end pegs, a fine gesture on this charitable day. Other fine gestures and thanks also go to Martin Walker, Dick Turner, Derek Foster, Coin Abbott and the randon (but generous) holiday maker for donations that further boosted our charity coffers.
