Club Match Section Fixtures 2023 - 2024


This is a very active area of the Club with competitions every other Sunday throughout the river season.  Every effort is made to ensure that the environment is made as comfortable and safe as it can be and, to this end, work parties prepare pegs and swims to the benefit of the Club as a whole.    Wherever possible, weather and ground conditions permitting, vehicular access to anglers’ swims is sought from landowners.

Please note that this only applies to pegged matches and pleasure anglers must use the designated car parking points.

NB. Wood Lane Section will also be closed when competitions are held at the upper swims at Colber


One of the following should be contacted to book in for matches…

Jeff Sibley 07901037120.             Neil Sims 07920 876638

Ian Paulley 07970228076.            Bill Hanson 07730046950.

It with pleasure that we can inform members that Ian Steele is continuing to improve after his operation and will be actively involved from the start of next season.

Arranging the pegging, pools and other necessities for matches take place on the day before the match.   If anglers are not going to attend, having previously booked in, it is essential that they advise one of the organisers.   If they don’t, the pegging, the draw and the prizes have to be redone on the morning of the match when there is much pressure to get underway

The dates of the Summer and Winter points matches are subject to river conditions and may be postponed to later date(s)

Please note that the entry fee and optional pools have been raised to £20 this season after many years at £15.
