Mallory Park Fisheries will be holding the 11th annual running of the Ivan Marks Memorial Match in May. It will be, as always, open to all anglers of any standard and offers a great opportunity to ‘rub shoulders’ with star anglers from all over the country, including Full Internationals from several countries. This event WILL be a sell-out!

The event will take place on Saturday, 23rd May and Sunday, 24th May 2015 to be fished on The Glebe Fishery which is opening early for this special event (normally opens June 1st). Entrants need to stipulate which day they wish to fish as first choice, as places are limited, and tickets are already selling fast for the two 100 peg limited matches held in memory of the legend himself, Ivan Marks … so get your entry in quick! Anglers can fish on both days if they book-up and pay their entry fees early doors.

The angler recording the biggest weight on either day will receive the coveted Ivan Marks Memorial Trophy and, once again, this award will be presented by the lovely Linda Marks and son, Chris. Leicester angling ace, Rob Wootton, will be attempting to grab the trophy for no less than the 5th time in 11 runnings!

Entry is £20, all of which goes to the Ivan Marks Memorial Fund, and there will be optional pools on both days with payouts spread out to give every competitor a good chance of winning ‘some coin’ while bagging one of the many 100lb-plus weights always on offer at The Glebe Fishery
