THE Mansfield Police Junior competition took place at Sherwood Forest Fishery, and the local area was well represented.

Worksop & DAA coaches Gary and Doreen Butt were on hand to offer advice and support.

This event was extremely well organised and credit must be given to Mansfield Police and Mick and the team at the fishery.

Any youngster who was unable to fish this match shouldn’t worry, as they are holding another on 27th October, again at Sherwood Forest.

The entry fee is only £3 and is supported by the Angling Development Board and Environment Agency.

There will be tackle prizes on the day.

Ivor Jones of Worksop Piscatorials has asked to inform members that the venue for the match on 11th will be Clearwater Lakes.

Congratulations to Mark Cook, pictured, for beating his personal best after a two year wait.
