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

That's it, the fat lady has sung, Elvis has left the building and the last Championship match of the 2018/19 season has been fished. If you don't know already I'll spoil any further anticipation by announcing that the winner is (again) Colin Rennison. To be fair, Colin has had more than his fair share of good draws, And to be even fairer, Colin has made the most of each draw - more than luck is needed as we have so many good anglers now fishing our matches. Well done Colin, well deserved, overall winner despite not actually winning a single match. You can read, in Colin's own words and pictures, how his season progressed here. And let's not forget second place Rich McCorry and thirds place Neil Anderson. Although both some points behind Colin's final tally a few better results over the last matches, for either one of them, could have seen a different outcome. Remember, all the banter, insults and incriminating pictures can be found on the FaceBook page.

Also news is that this most likely the last Match News that I publish. After 18 years of creating and publishing the VAC website and all it's ancillary pages I'm stepping down and passing things over to fresh pair of hands. Until my replacement is up to speed I'll continue to add the match results of course. See you on the bank : Stan Kiddle

Next matches:
 Our popular Tuesday 'midweek' fixtures continue (see below) and we have the first of our Spring Warm-Ups on March 10 at Frogmore. Book in with Allan as usual.

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.
