Following on from the success of last year's match, 10th August saw the 2nd annual Cheshire Junior Team Champs, organised by the Cheshire Angling Development Group.
The event was held at Bay Malton AC's Meridian Canal (part of the Border Fishery complex) near Crewe. Braving strong winds and heavy rain during the contest, the young anglers persevered through the 4-hour match to do their best for their respective teams. Every angler caught fish, although the weights were down from the practice session two week's previous.
7 teams from around the county took part in the match. Congratulations go to Penketh & Old Hall AS on winning the junior team trophy. The successful POHAS team were: Ethan Neary (captain), Joe Maddock, Thomas Dolson, Matthew Sutch, Liam Gaskell and Callum Brown.
Penketh fought off strong competition from last year's champions, Northwich Anglers Association, to take the title. The winning teams and individuals received trophies, and every competitor taking part was awarded a tackle voucher, courtesey of Stapeley Angling Centre.
