As many of you know our friend and TF member Duane Seckington sadly lost his battle with cancer last year , leaving behind a young family.

After many requests a memorial match will be held at Alders Farm on Thursday 31st of May.

This is exactly one year to the day that Duane last managed to go fishing, which incidentally was at Alders.

Please support this match if you can, money raised to be donated to the cancer ward at Northampton Hospital.

Thanks go to Trev Price for offering to run the match and Alders for letting us have the match there. Places will cost £25 per person. The charity match at Lindholme raised a good amount of cash last year and some of that has been used to purchase a teak bench and plaque. This will be placed either just before, or on the day of the match.

We have some great raffle prizes already for this match including five seperate prizes of tuition from some of the best anglers in the country.

Already raffle prizes have been donated :

A day fishing with Darren Cox.
A day fishing with Neil Machin.
A day fishing with Steve Ringer.

A day fishing with Andy May. 

A day fishing with Kieron Rich.

 If anyone else can help out with prizes we would be very grateful. Tickets are on sale  at £5 for 3 strips.

The best way to do this is if people that can`t attend want raffle tickets , they send  their monies to Dave Kightley aka Wheely Crap Angler and  he will publish a full list of your numbers the day before the match/raffle. His contact details can be found on the below link.


We will keep this to 30 pegs so everyone is on the same bit of water. As is always the case with matches we are bound to get one or two people dropping out so feel free to add your name to the reserves list.
