Janaway Cup Report 2018
Added on September 16, 2018

The last coaching session of the season is the annual Janaway Cup* junior competition.  All our juniors from the beginner and more advanced coaching groups fish together on Hill pond.  To make things fairer everyone has to fish with a 3m whip and use maggots as hookbait so there are no sneaky long poles being used to give any team an extra edge!   

As always this made for an exciting competition.  Unusually the tench that usually make up the bulk of the weights on hill pond were sulking- only 4 were caught in the whole event!  But with the tench not feeding this left space for some beautiful crucian carp and rudd to make up most of the weights.  The winners – Ben and George- sat on a veritable nest of curcians.  Ben and George are cracking anglers and needed no help to make the most of their draw.  The boys caught 15 quality crucians plus rudd and roach to put a fabulous 24lb 4oz on the scales. Even more impressive given the match was only 2 hours long and the fish went off the feed for the last 30 minutes.  What a net of fish!

With the winners way ahead that left a right scrap for the places.  Mirella and Fraser put together 4lb of small silver fish fishing both on the deck and up in the water.  Michael and Brodie targeted the rudd and caught 4lb 5oz for third place whilst Robbie and Jamie caught some rare small tench and a lovely crucian for5lb 3oz and a well-deserved second place.

After the match we had a great BBQ- thanks to Dan, Ben, Wendy, Brian and Bill who organised all the food.  This was a great end to what has been a fantastic summer of coaching at marsh farm.  We have held 9 events and bar one small shower we have had great fishing and lovely weather every time.  My thanks go to all the coaches who are a fantastic team and work hard to make these events enjoyable for everyone who turns up.  Thanks also to all the parents and kids who enjoy their fishing and stick with it even when bites are hard to get.

  • The Janaway Cup is presented to the club every year in memory of Chris Janaway, keen angler and young doctor, who was tragically, killed aged 28 in a road accident in 2008.  As is traditional the cup comes with jelly beans.  These were Christopher’s favourite treat when fishing with his dad. A tub off gourmet jelly beans were presented to each of the top 3 teams!

Junior Match, Johnson Lake
July 28th 2018

With only two turning out the stay-a-ways missed out on some great rudd and roach fishing topped by a superb 28lb from Jessica Carter. Jess fished with short pole and caster and maggot to take to stunning bag and earn another 5 points in the league. Ben Gregoriades tried something different until he realised the potential of catching rudd and roach, but still managed to weigh-in a respectable 10lb 10ozs of them.

Age groups: 

Jessica Carter 28-1-0

2018 Junior Night Match

2018 Junior Night Match
Broadwater Lake

It was again disappointing to see so few attend this annual event, but the nine who turned out did enjoy some good sport when the sun went down. We also saw 5 new competitors who we hope will come to more Broadwater competitions and hopefully others.

Well done once more to Ben Gregoriades, who came back from a previous match blank to score an impressive 216lb 14ozs of 21 assorted mirrors and commons from peg 4 at the swimming pool end. Ben topped his catch with a 14lb 6oz mirror to finish well clear of the field.
It was a pleasure to see on of our younger competitors, Leo Tilbury, attend his first match and secure 2nd place overall with a fine 113lb 3ozs from peg 14. Leo had 10 fish and won the biggest fish prize with a 19lb 10oz common as well as top spot in his age group. Well done and I think there maybe the odd trophy coming his way after the Xmas match in December!
Third place overall went to another first timer, Ollie Sheehan, who took 8 fish for a very respectable 92lb from peg 10.
While weights where down from the previous year, everyone caught, so no blanks! Well done to all the lads fishing and hope we see you next year.

Finally, as always, I complete this report by thanking all the helpers/bailiffs, including Dave Kill, for their help and support. They are the ones who make this competition possible. Thanks also go to our sponsors, Gardner Tackle, who once more showed how much they look after the juniors with goodie bags and prizes. Steve at Apollo Angling also supported the kids with prizes and I trust when you are next in the Marsh Farm shop you’ll remember this support and spend your money wisely!
