The Upper River Trent is hosting a charity match in early September with the proceeds going to the MacMillan Charity.

Organiser Tony Vandome has succeeded in getting some backing from Coors Brewery and Shakespeare for the Sunday Sept 9th event, which will take place on the Sharratts Farm, Ferry Bridge, Municiple, Bailey’s Meadow, Broadholme and Andressy Meadow sections around Shardlow not far from junction 24a of the M1.It’s £20 all in with £5 of the money going to the charity. The remaining £15 will all be paid out. The draw is at the Washlands Sports Club, with fishing from 11am to 4pm and breakfast from 7.30am at the club. Contact Tony on 01283 512711, or email .
