Just a wee reminder about the Colin &Hannah Doherty Memorial cup on this Monday evening at 7.00. A nice wee flood on this evening so should be in good shape by then.Our July committee meeting on this Tuesday in Tobemore starting at 8.00.There seems to be very little interest in the Fermamagh away trip might cancel this to another time.

The first winner of the new Robert Hueston Cup was Stanley Aspinall with a nice bag of fish on the worm. In second place was Wesley McClenaghan on worm, and in third place was Jonny Hurl on spinners. This puts Wesley well out in front of the league with 64 points. Nearest to Wesley on 46 points is Jonny Hurl. Our next competition is the Colin & Hannah Doherty Memorial Cup which is on Monday the 18th of July. Our next away trip is coming up on the 13th & 14th  August to Mill Lough in Bellanalack, Fermamagh, so I would need names as soon as possible to book accommodation. Tight Lines.

This weeks Mars Bar winner was Stanley Aspinal. A Mars Bar is awarded to someone who caught no fish on competition day.
