Presentation evening



Well it has soon come round to that time of the year when we all meet up in the Ellesemere pub in Hindley for Balmoral AC presentation evening , we had a reasonable turn out but i was still a bit disappointed that six anglers didn’t show up or even respond to the text i had sent and three of those were in line to pick up a trophy . At 6pm we started the meeting with most of the club here , first of all we did the medals for the match winners ;

Beacon view Joey Scott 49lb 8oz

Catteries 2 Paul Nelson 41lb 14oz

German lane Gary Matthews 31lb 11oz

Lathom 1 Mick Anderson 43lb 9oz

Widdows Bob Haggerty 35lb 9oz

Cunneries  A guest 65lb 1oz

Hall lane Mac Goldern 57lb 12oz

Orrcherton Allen Holmes 73lb 6oz

Blundells Dave Benson 28lb 11oz

Rosemary wood Shaun Ganderton 45lb 12oz

Wrightington Paul Nelson 76lb 14oz

Special mention must go to Paul Nelson who was the only angler to win two matches this year , next up was the trophy for the highest match weight and this went down to the last match at Wrightington fishery , yet again Paul Nelson walked away with the trophy catching over 76lb .

Next was the big one the overall club winner and this also went to the wire , with three people in contention at Wrightington fishery and fortunately for me my second in the section kept me at the top of the league .
