Shipston AC "v" Newbury AC

Held on the Stour at Clifford Chambers and Monks Barn

                                                        Sunday 17 September 2023
   This was the 2nd round on the Stour at Clifford Chambers and Monks Barn Farm.

    Newbury won with top spot going to Newbury angler Dave Smith with 7lb 09oz, Byron Yates who fished for Newbury for the day came second with 7lb 01oz, Stuart Fleming came third with 5 lb 15 oz and young Connor Parsons came fourth with 5 lb 12 oz.

    So this event which is just a bit of fun between the two clubs but still competitive saw the two match series tied which generally happens. The river fished really well with loads of silver fish caught, the bigger fish were present on most pegs but not feeding, the catch of the day was from Connor who caught well on the stick float with very little flow on the river.

    Next time we fish at Newbury will be the Help For Heroes match on 1st October, the peg fees from this match were kindly donated from this match to H4H's from ADDAC a great gesture on the day.

    Well done to All that fished over the two days.

Cotswold Cup

Held at Boddington Reservoir

                                                        Sunday 10 September 2023

    Good result for Shipston ac with a much deserved win and retain the cup for another year.

    The annual Cotswold cup was this year  at Boddington reservoir and after seven days of extreme heat we prepared for a hard tight match and that is how it panned out with the better weights at the far end of the reservoir as we predicted.

    The team put in an astounding job on the day and kept to the game plan.

    Steve Beard was the overall Winner for Shipston with 11 carp and weighed in 129lb  and another noteable result from young James Yates who  came third out of 40 anglers catching five carp for 65 lb 05 oz ,Well done to them and the rest of the team who all picked up decent points on the day

    Shipston AC won, Moreton AC second, Burford AC third and Norgren AC fourth.
