Ken Shergold / John Jenkins Memorial Match 2009

Members of the Club converged on Quarry Lake over the weekend of the 18th October 2009 for the third annaul John Jenkins / Ken Shergold memorial match on behalf of the Chestnut Tree children's hospice.

The organisers had set themselves a fundraising target of £1,000, but sponsorship, a raffle, barbecue and breakfast sandwiches meant the amount raised was close to £1,500!

The match comprises two elements; biggest carp caught, and highest weight of carp caught in 24hrs.

Kieron Stigant went one better than last year and won both trophies and a weeks fishing in France for his efforts for his largest carp of 23lb 8oz. The contest for highest weight was close-run, Stigant overtaking Gareth Evans with half-an-hour to spare!

The organisers thanked sponsors, and companies, who in hard times donated generously towards the raffle prizes.
