Trophy Winners 2007/08

On Friday May 9th the Annual Presentation Evening was held at the Lamb Inn Yapton where Club Chairman Nigel Chapman handed out the trophies to the successful matchmen from the 2007/8 Season.
The Trophy winners and a brief report of the 2007/8 Seasons matches are listed below.

M Sampson Cup – Steve Jeffery 30 points
Fished over three legs on the Chichester Canal on summer evenings, Steve had a clean sweep and won each match.

Daniels Cup – John Williams 17-6-0
Fished against Haslemere at Shillinglee (north of Petworth) on a horrendous day with thunder lightening and torrential rain – typical Summers day in 2007!

W Sampson Cup – Steve Jeffery 20 points
Fished on Cart Pond over two legs and again Steve won both matches, these matches are normally fished on the Rother but conditions last year were such that the matches had to be moved.

Ransome Cup – Vince Herringshaw 13-13-0
Fished on the Arun at Watersfield, one of the few occasions we actually got a river match last season.

Ottaway Cup – Vince Herringshaw 13-14-0
Fished against Portsmouth at their new Waterside venue in the winter, we look forward to our trip there next summer when some big weights could come out.

BBQ Shield – Steve Jeffery 13-9-0
Fished at Walberton on Stemps Pond, fishing is always secondary to the food and banter at this event where all those that have contributed their time to the club get together.

Richards & Blumson Cup – Vince Herringshaw 5-0-8
Fished at Stemps Wood over two legs, Vince was even on points with Rab Butler and Steve J but had a slightly superior weight.

Parfrement Cup – Keith Hughes 1-9-8
The only other match we managed on the river last year again at Watersfield, where conditions were far from ideal reflected by the low weights.

LEC Cup – Steve Jeffery 37 points
Our winter series from October to February on the Chichester Canal, Steve had equal points with Steve Simmonds but a superior weight.

Daniels Rose Bowl – Steve Jeffery 18-14-0
Fished at Petworth Park after having to be moved from a flooded river.

Presidents Cup – Steve Jeffery 14-13-0
Fished at Hurston Lane Fishery on the Match Pond

Charles Tankard – Keith Hughes 14-10-0
Fished at Hurston Lane Fishery on the Match Pond at the height of the Foot & Mouth outbreak, this match should have been our first visit to Bethwins for a match but we had to move.

Pairs Tankard – Steve Jeffery & John Williams 19-2-0
Fished on the Match Pond at Hurston Lane Fishery. John caught the bulk of the weight – even though Steve J had an off day for him he still manages to get his name on the trophy.

Mixed Pairs – Samantha Bond & Steve Jeffery 9-15-0
Fished on the Match Pond at Hurston Lane Fishery Steve and Samantha retained the Trophy for another year.

Kirby Bott Cup – Kevin Leighfield 19 points
Fished over two legs at Petworth Park Kevin won with a first place and a second place. The largest match weight of the season at 56-7-8 was caught by Roger Wheetman on the first of the two legs.

Jubilee Cup – Keith Hughes 18 Points
Fished over two legs at Stemps Wood against Portsmouth and District Angling Society

Matchman Cup
– Steve Jeffery 983 points
Based on all matches fished and using a combination of weight caught and position on the day.

Points Cup – Steve Jeffery 154 Points
The best 16 matches over the season go towards the points trophy.

Aggregate Weights Cup – Steve Jeffery 217-6-0
