September 2015: Not Enough Anglers Part Two

The Bridget Price match on August 30th had to be cancelled, not enough anglers turned up. This is a great shame, and also a huge waste  of time and money for the Match Secretary, who has an 80 mile round trip every time he runs a club match. It's been rescheduled for September 27th.

July 2015: Not Enough Anglers

The Saturday League Round 2 match on July 4th had to be cancelled, not enough anglers turned up.

So, in future, WILL ALL ANGLERS INTENDING TO FISH A MATCH PLEASE LET THE MATCH SEC KNOW IN ADVANCE - TELEPHONE/TEXT TO 07914495882. Otherwise, matches may be cancelled again at the last minute.
