Welcome to VAC Match


Season 2018-19 Fixtures - will be published soon

Match Scene - A new season awaits by Stan Kiddle

Last season was a real mixed bag with numerous great catches (perhaps best ever season at Riverside and Frogmore) but some difficult times as well, what with a fish kill at Frogmore and an up-an-down winter. Luckily, as recent results have proved, Frogmore still has plenty of fish and our mid-week matches continue to be well supported with often 10-12 fishing.

Looking forward, with Riverside opening earlier than previous years and a great selection of venues for our Championship fixtures (details almost ready to be published) the next twelve months should be even better.

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 are going to see some six-hour matches in the Summer, section pools re-introduced and greater clarity on pools payouts. We have also introduced a Facebook page so that items of a more dynamic nature plus input from members can be easily accessed. This is a public page - no need to even be a VAC and/or Facebook member to view.

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


Pictured left, Championship winner from last season, Colin Rennison, carried on where he left off with a win on the first of the season's Spring Warm-Ups. His 18.14 was the only double-figure weight from an out-of-sorts Frogmore. See full results below.

Next matches:  The new season's Championship will kick off on June 10th at Riverside as is tradition. And, as always, it will be a Charity match so we will be charging 3 along with optional pools. Before then we have three more Warm-ups to fit in plus the Champion of Champions match for the qualifiers from last season. On April 1st we are on the road lake at Puddledock. This was very popular back in February when 78lb was top so expect demand for places. Then, on April 29th, we are at a venue yet to be confirmed. Final Warm-Up is at Riverside on May 20th followed by the Champ of Champs match at Alders Farm on May 27th.

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:

** Match on Tuesday April 17th is at Southend Farm on the main lake **


Click here for the fixture schedule for April until end July


The Tuesday matches continue at Frogmore for the time being with consideration to alternate to local commercial venues as the weather improves and Frogmore gets busier. Results do vary with the weather but winning weights are always respectable, plus attendance is good, 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.


Pictured right is Chris Stride with part of his 40.10 winning weight from 22 March.

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.
