2019 Junior Night Match
Broadwater Lake
July 6/7th

Another year in the annual junior night match saw a good improvement in numbers from previous years with just 2 age groups attending, yet no young adults! Even so a turnout of 13 was excellent. Learning how to pull a flyer normally doesn’t start till you’re much older, but we seem to have someone who’s breaking that mould with Ben Gregoriades pulling out the same winning peg as last year! Ben netted 16 assorted mirrors and commons to 14lb 10ozs for a superb weight of 138lb 13ozs, which was nearly double the second place weight.

On his first visit to this annual match was 10 year old Liam Fitzgerald, who was next to the winner and had 6 fish to 17lb 2ozs for a total weight of 77lb 12ozs. Liam easily won his age group and I’ve no doubt he’ll be back next year! Ollie Sheehan was in 3rd place, but second in his age group, with 6 fish to 16lb for a total 70lb 4ozs weight from peg 14, which was just ahead of Matt Devasagayam on peg 6 who had 67lb 5ozs, topped by a superb 18lb 13oz mirror, which won the biggest fish prize. 

Unfortunately in fishing there are always winners and non-winners, but it’s important to remember that this is the nature of our sport and things always turn out different as we go through life. So to all those who didn’t catch, or those who didn’t catch enough to win prizes, just remember that your time will come, so keep learning, trying and never give up! Well done to you all.

My thanks go to Dave Kill and his team of bailiffs/helpers for their continued help and support, for without them this event would definitely not be staged. Further thanks go to Gardner Tackle who, as always, continue to support the juniors with prizes and goodie bags. Also Apollo Angling for their generous support. Last but not least is GAS itself, who continue to dig deep for the fish and chip expenses, which is much appreciated by all the competitors and supporting helpers.
