It has been good to see many new faces coming to join the club matches and the club hopes even more will come along this weekend, with the match taking place at Cement Bridge, with the draw at 7.30am.

The river has also been fishing really well for pleasure anglers, with lots of reports coming in of tench carp and bream and some nice nets of silvers.
