Seasons Match's at Whaddon
Avon AC will not be able to fish our published match's at Whaddon
this season due to access problems.
This year all three fields that we fish have been planted with
crops and the track we normally use to drive down to the river
had been ploughed and is now unsuitable to drive across.
It is hoped that some of these match's will be moved elsewhere
but some will have to be cancelled.
We are sorry to disappoint our match fishing members but this
is beyond our control.
Updates on match dates and venues will be posted on the clubs
website and Facebook page
Our Open matches due to fished on Sunday 1st July and Sunday
26th Aug have now been cancelled.
The Saturday series will now be fished on Scotland Road, Portman
