        As someone who is deeply interested in angling history I would like to compile a list of both team and individual winners of the Div 1 since 1972, including venues and no. of teams.

        Recent statements that Dorking were the first team to defend a Div 1 title – I think the BAA did it back in 1975 and 1976 – make this a worthwhile job as there isn’t a reference point. I will make the table available to this site when complete. I have a cache of AT & AM in the loft and have always strived to keep the issues with these results every year so will need to get up there and have a dig around.

        I already have some of the results just off the top of my head, mainly 1970s and 80s but will check everything.

        Pre 1972 I have a list already as it was published in the early 1970s.

        Please add known results to this thread.

          I’ve been through three boxes of papers so far; doing well prior to 1992 but anyone who knows any results post 1992 – venue, team/individual winners, year, winning weight, no. of teams – please feel free to contribute.

            There are a few who will be able to help you out on Simple Match Fishing (HanKaT Section) . Some on there have won Division 1 Nationals both individually and with their teams and would only be too glad to help.

            Would make a fantastic nostalgic thread 😉 😎

              Keep at it Mark, the Angling trust results Archive only goes to the year 2000


              I can see a new book coming on?

                Cheers, Rich,

                I hadn’t found that lot!

                Keep stumbling across ancient match results as I dig through 40 years worth of papers.

                Well done on the BA, sounds like a great match.

                The main missing results are now 1992 to 1999 plus a few individual winners like 1976, 79, 81 and Pete Burrell’s weight from 1980.

                  I’m sure the Angling Trust will help if you call them. Good luck with the project. Ken Cope’s son kept his pictures I think…. (hope).

                    I’ve just asked the Angling Trust. I found more info in an old 1988 Angler’s Mail annual; that gave me everything up to 1986.

                    As suspected Birmingham AA were the first team to successfully defend a Div 1 title, winning in 1975 and 1976.

                      Hello mark, I know my response to this thread is ten years late, but did you ever complete the list? I cannot find one published anywhere. Maybe if the list was available, between us, we could maybe enter it into Wikipedia.
