Match Scene

Over the last year there have been some changes in the match committee and a big effort has been made to listen to feedback. As a result we saw some six-hour matches in the Summer, section pools re-introduced and greater clarity on pools payouts. We also introduced a Facebook page so that items of a more dynamic nature plus input from members can be easily accessed. This is a closed page - so you need to be an existing or prospective VAC member to be allowed entry.

Remember that you can see all the results (and all years back to 2001) on the match archive at the bottom of this page.


Match news

We’ve had a very busy first half of the year on the match section with a number of matches full to capacity and a number of new faces joining us for both the weekdays matches and the main championship matches.

As we move into the autumn it good time to look back at the season so far.

The main championship is hotly contested as always. Previous championship winners Alan Bayman and Colin Rennison hold to top 2 places, Alan Gardner and Andy Zneimer have put in a number of strong performances this year and are hot on the heels of the leaders. With several matches left it is still very much up for grabs.

We’ e had some mixed results so far this year with some previously good venues providing disappointing sport such as Fairlands valley and Lake John but our first visit to Wold Farm was rewarded with very good feedback about the venue and general upkeep of the place.

Our evening league concluded with a very clear winner, Josh Blavins who entered 5 matches and won all 5. Demonstrating his worthiness, Josh drew the worst rated peg at Frogmore, peg 1, and won from it.. twice !

The main championship will pause at the end of November and resume in April but we have our winter silver series running from January to April and our Christmas match in December too, so plenty to keep everyone busy. This is the first year we are doing the silver series after regular requests for more traditional styles of fishing so please support this initiative.

A reminder that all members are welcome to participate and if you want to go on the distribution list to get the emails for results and booking on please just email matches@verulam-angling.co.uk

Week-day matches:  

Midweek fixtures for 2019 up until July can be seen here.

 

The Tuesday matches are now alternating between Frogmore and Riverside. Results do vary with the weather but winning weights are always respectable, plus attendance is good, a best of 19 but usually 10 or more .

 

Draws are at 8:30 and fishing 10 to 3 although this may be tweaked slightly on the day.

Pools are optional and are just 5 plus optional 2 for a 'silvers pool'. Steve Burfoot is running these matches so if you want to book on please contact him here or telephone 07505 109880.   Fishery nets provided at the VAC waters.

 

Pictured right is organiser Steve with part of his 44.12 winning weight from Riverside on 5 February.


A reminder that, due to demand, booking for ALL MATCHES is vital. This must be via email or text, don't just mention it whilst weighing in two months earlier and expect us to remember. And, if you fail to turn up, you will be liable for the peg fee.
