Makins Fishery played host to the Angling Trust Junior National (10-15) which was a scorcher of match, not just due to the weather, but also down to some great weights from the young guns.
A little bit of National Championship history was made here when Dawley AS fielded an all-female junior team for the very first time and despite finishing last, they put in a really good performance and enjoyed their first National team fishing experience, let’s hope they get many more.
On the Individual front, it was Sensas A4’s Owen Newman who was crowned Junior Individual Champion for 2019, when he won a close fought battle with 30.950Kg of carp from Inner Severn peg 25. Just behind him and taking the runners up spot was Matthew Mollart (Worksop), who weighed 30.100kg of carp from peg 17 on Thames and third place went to Tyler Bird (Sensas Mark One Datum 360) with 29.325kg.
Sensas A4 MG Orange took the team honours on the day with a great display of team fishing, recording 41 points, only dropping 7. Helping them on their way were; match winner Owen, and fourth placed Katie Crooks. Second place went to Sensas Mark One Datum 360 with 35pts and third place went to Ramsbottom AA with 30pts.
All competitors on the day went home with a Guru filled goody bag and the top four Individuals all received Dynamite Bait prize buckets.
The Angling Trust would like to thank Alan and his team at Makins Fishery for helping to make this a fabulous day for the youngsters and to Guru and Dynamite baits for their generous prizes.
