 Junior Match Thursday 3rd August 2017

firstly sorry for the delay in post but its been a manic week with a lot going on but here are the results from match one in the 2017 junior competition.

We had 8 juniors for our first match at Darwen Lake who very kindly allowed the juniors to fish there. the results are as follows

1st place: Bailey King 33lb 11oz

2nd place: Anthony Cooper 27lb 10oz
3rd place: Ryan Marchant 10lb 5oz
4th place: Alfie Scamam-Smith 9lb 4 oz
5th place: Benjamin Wallace 8lb 6oz
6th place: David Barley 7lb 8oz
7th place: Isaac Eames 7lb
8th place: Holly Marchant 3lb 14oz

Conditions were pretty awful with swirling winds and heavy rain at times, but there was not a single complaint from all the children and all tried their best for the whole 4 hr match. resulting in some great weights and a few specimens including a 12lb 7oz Carp by Anthony a 8lb 9oz carp by Ryan and a 2lb 3oz Chub from Alfie. Anthony Cooper won the random spot prize which was a book and dvd on rigs and knots. All that entered received a starter pack of tackle and all won a prize. I want to extend a huge thank you to all the staff at Darwen To the lovely Deb Hollis and Pat Byrne and all the parents uncles aunts and grandparents who made the day such fun. Looking forward to part 2 on thursday at Mill Cotton. All the best Bryan
