Sunday saw the final Lymm AC Juniors event of the year, it was also the final of the Autumn Series of six matches. Sarah Taylor finished 7th on the day after a bad draw which was good enough to take the title. On the day David Smith caught a carp, tench and two bream within four casts which was good enough the win with 7lb 4oz. Second place was taken by Nathan Brooks with 6lb 5oz mainly of skimmers and roach caught on pellet. Jack Stansfield came third on the day with 5lb 12oz of corn caught skimmers. As mentioned took the series title with 10 points from Kyle Hickman with 18 points then interestingly four anglers were tied on points and the collective weight meant that Alex Warham, Callum McCormack, Elliott Mavers and Jack Ross all on 29 points, Elliott and Jack also had the same weight.
As the final event of the year we had several trophies to give out. Our Most Improved Angler of the Year went to Richard Hansley, our Newcomer of the Year was won by Callum McCormack and Angler of the Year won by Sarah Taylor. We had over £100 worth of tackle and bait donated by Taskers Angling and Cheshire Baits meaning we could everyone who took part and really good prize, including rods, holdalls and tackle.
The year has been a very successful one for the junior section, we have had over 150 participants in our events. Our Academy Section who cater for complete beginners was really popular with six people taking part in the spring and eight in the Autumn Series. We have twelve placed open for next year. On the match front we finished second in the Merseyside Championships, 4th in our first national held on the River Weaver, our cadets finished 3rd in their age group of the same event. Hopefully in 2014 we will continue this success and build for better future.
We begin the Spring Series 2014 on March 24 and run every other Sunday for six events. Our Autumn Series will begin on 17th August. For more details see our 2014 Calendar
