Match Fishing - Seniors
The match calenders for 2021 can be opened using the link in the side bar.
All members are welcome to fish the matches. The matches are not taken too seriously and take place in a relaxed atmosphere with plenty of banter and fun!!
The first match of the season is the Work Party Trophy. Although the match is open to all members, only those who have attended a work party can actually win the trophy and acquire points for the league. Work party dates will be announced in the near future in the News section.
Again we have five away matches planned in 2021 at some fantastic venues, all within an hours drive away. To book on a match please contact the Senior Match Secretary - Eddy Hegarty. Book on early to avoid disappointment!
Firstly we have the Work Party Trophy at the Moss Farm Fishery in Irlam which we have fished many times before on the usual match lake, Madison's.
We are then at Whitmore fishing Doughnut which again we have fished before. Doughnut has mixed species but Carp are usually required to be in the top 3. A nice central island makes a great feature to fish too.
Next up we have Lake 3 at Bradshaws which we are familiar with from last few years.
The last match of the summer league and also again in the winter league, will be held on Bradshaws Lake 4 again which we are familiar with from last year.
Again, please book on this with Eddy to secure your place.
More information on these venues can be found using the links in the side bar.
Once again we will endeavour to arrange a ’home and away’ challenge match against Rochdale Walton Angling Society for 2020. The top 8 anglers on points in the Championship just prior to the match will qualify to fish. Also we will arrange a similar match against Todmorden. The first one at Lane Head and the second leg on Croft. This team to be determined by the Match Secretary.
