Sensas A4 MG Orange take Junior National Championships

Junior National press release 2019

Makins Fishery played host to the Angling Trust Junior National (10-15) which was a scorcher of match, not just due to the weather, but also down to some great weights from the young guns.

A little bit of National Championship history was made here when Dawley AS fielded an all-female junior team for the very first time and despite finishing last, they put in a really good performance and enjoyed their first National team fishing experience, let’s hope they get many more.

On the Individual front, it was Sensas A4’s Owen Newman who was crowned Junior Individual Champion for 2019, when he won a close fought battle with 30.950Kg of carp from Inner Severn peg 25. Just behind him and taking the runners up spot was Matthew Mollart (Worksop), who weighed 30.100kg of carp from peg 17 on Thames and third place went to Tyler Bird (Sensas Mark One Datum 360) with 29.325kg.

Sensas A4 MG Orange took the team honours on the day with a great display of team fishing, recording 41 points, only dropping 7. Helping them on their way were; match winner Owen, and fourth placed Katie Crooks. Second place went to Sensas Mark One Datum 360 with 35pts and third place went to Ramsbottom AA with 30pts.

All competitors on the day went home with a Guru filled goody bag and the top four Individuals all received Dynamite Bait prize buckets.

The Angling Trust would like to thank Alan and his team at Makins Fishery for helping to make this a fabulous day for the youngsters and to Guru and Dynamite baits for their generous prizes.

Tri-Cast Bait-Tech take Youth National

Youth National 2019 press release

Makins Fishery played host to the Angling Trust Youth National (16-20) which was a scorcher of match, not just due to the weather, but also down to some great weights from the young guns.

John Light (Jnr) (Sensas A4 MG Green) couldn’t believe his luck when he was given corner peg 8 on Lake 3, his peg being black with sunbathing carp. Right from the off he caught carp by dobbing pellet on the pole a switch to shallow methods saw John catching steadily all day to place 55.750Kg on the scales. This earnt him the title of Youth National Champion 2019, which we believe to be the first ever son and Father to have picked up the same individual title! Four pegs away at peg 19 Rob Swan (Tri-Cast Bait-Tech) adopted similar tactics to the winner, but couldn’t quite match him for numbers and he ended up with 50.325Kg. Josh Newman (Sensas Mark One Datum 360 White) took third place from peg 26 on Lake 4 after fishing pellet waggler to the corner of his island.

Tri-Cast Bait-Tech were crowned Youth National Team Champions with three section winners helping them to 40pts on the day. Sensas Mark One Datum 360 White claimed the runner place with 38pts and Sensas A4 MG Green were third with 33pts.

The section winners from this match all qualified for this weekends' Junior Fish'O'Mania final at Hayfield Lakes and they are:

2018 Junior & Youth National Championship

             Junior and Youth press release 2018

Marukyu Evesham & Tri-Cast Bait-Tech take top honours at Junior & Youth Nationals

Aston Parks Fisheries played host to a thrilling, Junior and Youth National on Saturday 30th June. Sweltering conditions met the young anglers, who’d made their way from all around the country to fish the event.

Junior National Championships

Looking at the younger, Junior (10-15yr olds) age category, Bills and Butts lake were the chosen venues. Both lakes have a good stock of ide and carp, which were both crucial in placing well as a team.

Chris Randall took the individual honours, with an impressive 32.125kg of shallow caught ide and carp. Drawing peg 43 on Butts Lake, the Nottingham AA angler fed plenty of casters to get his fish competing shallow, where he kept his weight ticking over with Ide, whilst waiting to snare occasional bigger carp.

Austin Jennings took second place by a very narrow margin with 31.450kg, from peg 19 on Bills Lake. The Sensas A4 angler also fished casters shallow, catching both ide and carp. Rounding out the top three was Mitchel Butterfield (Wakefield AC) with 28.500kg from peg 25 on Bills Lake.

On the all-important team front, Marukyu Evesham Youth were crowned Junior National Champions for 2018, in a very tight match. The team clearly had it tactics down for the venue, with three seconds, two thirds and a fourth, highlighting some excellent team fishing! Last year’s winners Sensas A4 ran them all the way and finished just two points behind on 36 points and Wakefield AC rounded out the top three, with a very respectable 32 points.

Team Results 

1. Marukyu Evesham Youth- 38 points 

2. Sensas A4 - 36 points 

3. Wakefield AC - 32 points 

Individual Results 

1. Chris Randall 32.125kg

Youth National Championships

The youth age category encompasses 16-20yr olds and it was great to see six teams enter in this tricky age category, with many youngsters fishing up an age group.

Splits and Lilly lakes were utilised, which gave anglers the opportunity to fish both, out in open water and down the edges for a few lumps.

Kieran Charnock took the individual honors with an awesome 45.36kg. The Tri-Cast Bait-Tech Black angler, took a good run of ide short on caster, before moving onto his carefully prepared margin lines, for 14 good sized carp. In an incredibly close second, was teammate Zac Worby, Zac used similar tactics at peg 3 on Lilly for 45.025kg and also won his all-important section. Will Evans took third spot on the day by some distance. Fishing for Nottingham AA, Will amassed 35.950kg of ide and carp, from peg 3 on Split.

Tri-Cast Bait-Tech dominated this match with their teams finishing first and second. It was their Gold team that were crowned Youth National Champions for 2018, with all six of their anglers in the top three of their respective sections and a score of 28 points.

There was a points tie for second and third place between, Tri-Cast Bait-Tech Black and Worksop DAA, both with 24 points. The Tri-Cast Bait-Tech team just took the runner up spot, with a superior total weight.

Team Results

1. Tri-Cast Bait-Tech Gold - 28 points

2017 Junior & Youth National Championship

Fantastic fishing from the future of angling at National Championships

Please click here for the Youth National results 2017.

A great turnout of 96 young and enthusiastic anglers fished this year’s Angling Trust Junior & Youth National Championships at the prolific Tunnel Barn Farm fishery in Shrewley. With changes made to the age groups to align our youngsters with FIPSed rulings, competition was fierce and both matches were very close affairs.

The junior match was fished on Extension, House and Canal Pools and with warm windy conditions the lakes resident F1s and carp fed well. Making the most of this on the day was Jake Pope (Junior Match Aid) who drew Extension peg 7 and caught F1s and carp at 13m on banded pellet for a total weight of 32.180kg. Incredibly close behind was 14 year old Callum Jennings (Evesham Youth AC) on House peg 4 who amassed an agonising 31kg exactly. Third on the day went to 14 year old Tom Clark (Sensas A4) on House peg 30 with 30.200kg.

On the team front an impressive Sensas A4 retained the Junior National Championship title for the third year running with a huge 43pts total. Evesham Youth AC were second with 38pts, followed by Junior Match Aid with 33pts.

In comparison the youth match was fished on High and Jennys Pool and won by Will McCranor (Tri-cast Weston Red) who drew peg 14 on Jennys. Will expertly fished caster shallow across for an impressive 64.600kg. In another agonising finish Zak Worby (Tri-cast Weston Black) put 60.550kg on the scales from peg 6 on Jennys. Finishing off an all Tri-cast affair was Jordan Holloway (Tri-cast Weston Red) from High pool peg 15 with 46.000kg.

Junior Team winners Sensas A4

                                  2016 Junior & Youth National Championship

This year the fabulous Partridge Lakes complex in Cheshire played host to the Angling Trust Cadets and Junior Angling Championships on Saturday 25th June 2016. Sadly the numbers of teams taking part was very disappointing. Whilst the Cadets event again saw 4 teams fishing, the Junior Championship had only 9 teams, which was 5 teams down on 2015, and eventually the Intermediates event, which had only 2 teams registered was ultimately cancelled when both opted not to fish.


The Cadet National Championship was split evenly between Spey and Marsh Pools. Both are canal-type pools holding loads of carp, F1’s and plenty of silvers. They were in reasonable form following the stormy weather in the previous 24 hours and provided most anglers with a nice day’s fishing.

Individually the top weight of 25 kilos 630 gms was taken by Match Aid angler Jake Pope from peg C1 on Spey. His catch comprised some good carp, F1’s and smaller fish. Runner-up was Ryan Kennison fishing for Sensas A4 at peg F1 on Marsh. Ryan put 18 kilos 510 gms on the scales. Worksop DAA’s Jay Gill, the 2015 Champion, secured third spot with 17 kilos 010 gms at peg E3 on Marsh. Fourth place went to Tom Pearson of Worksop with 15 kilos 710 gms. Match Aid anglers filled the next two spots. Sonny Lynn was fifth with 13 kilos 980 gms and Billy Pitman sixth with 12 kilos 420 gms just ahead of Billy Kirk of Match Aid with 12 kilos 180 gms.

Team honours went to Worksop DAA with 21 out of a possible 24 points. Match Aid totalled 19 points and Sensas A4 had 13 points leaving Dawley Angling Society 4th with 6 points.

The Junior Championship saw the six sections spread across the famous Covey pools. These tremendously consistent pools are used for all the big events at Partridge Lakes and again did not fail to deliver an exciting match for the anglers.

Top rod, fishing at peg A6, was the 2015 Junior Champion Tom Edwards of Sensas A4. Tom caught mainly F1’s to 2 kilos plus some proper carp to put a magnificent 53 kilos 690 gms on the scales. Yestyn Sephton fishing for Tameside Matrix Bait Tech clinched second spot with 45 kilos 280 gms at peg B4. Third place went to Sarah Taylor of Tameside Matrix Bait Tech Gold with 44 kilos 500 gms from A9. Sensas A4 anglers filled the next three places. Adam Swain took fourth with 42 kilos 350 gms. Fifth place went to Sam Collett with 40 kilos 320 gms and Jack Damant sixth with 40 kilos 190 gms.

Sensas A4 were again crowned Junior Team Champions with a total of 50 points nine clear of Tameside Matrix Bait Tech with 41 points.

Other team results as follows;

3rd Match Aid Juniors - 39 points

4th Sensas A4 Academy - 34 points

5th Tameside Matrix Bait Tech Gold - 26 points (127 kilos 690 gms)

6th Worksop DAA - 26 points (114 kilos 68 gms)

7th Dawley A S Juniors - 22 points

8th Nisa Waveney Bait Tech - 15 points (74 kilos 730 gms)

9th Wakefield AS - 15 points (67 kilos 970 gms)

The top 6 section winners from the Junior category going to the Fish 'O' Mania grand final on 9th July at Cudmore Fisheries fishing Suez are; Tom Edwards, Yestyn Sephton, Jack Damant, William McCranor, Adam Swain and Sam Collett.

Once again a great day was had by all despite the intermittent heavy showers. Thanks in no small way to the wonderful team at Partridge Lakes.

                             2015 Junior & Youth National Championship

The Angling Trust Cadets, Juniors & Intermediates National Championship was held on Saturday 27th June 2015 split between Maver Larford Lakes for the Intermediates, and Solhampton Fishery for the Cadets and Juniors, at Worcestershire.


After some late withdrawals only 4 teams contested the cadet Championship on Dragonfly Pool at the beautiful Solhampton Fishery in Worcestershire.  The Pool was in good form and provided all anglers with a tremendous day’s fishing.

           Cadets 2nd team Tameside Matrix

Individually the top weight, a magnificent 30 kilos 800 gms was taken by Worksop angler Jay Gill at peg 29. His catch comprised some good sized carp and smaller fish. Runner-up was Lewis Walker fishing for Dawley A.S at peg 39 who put a tremendous 24 kilos 400 gms on the scales. Junior Match Aid’s Josh Newman captured third spot with 21 kilos 450gms at peg 33.

Team honours went to Junior Match Aid Cadets with 20 points.  There was a tie for runners-up on 14points. However Tameside Matrix BT had a better weight aggregate leaving Dawley Angling Society third.

Kristian Jones of  Tameside Matrix BT Red was runner-up taking 54 kilos 850gms at Buzzard 16. Kingfisher peg 2 saw Morgan Davidson of  Dawley Angling Society take third place with 54 kilos 750 gms

Sensas A4 were crowned Junior Champions with a total of 58 points just edging out Junior Match Aid Blue by 1 point.  Third place went to Tameside Matrix Bait Tech Red with 47 points  

            Winning Intermediates Team 2015 Casts Bag em Baits


The Intermediates Championship took place at the famous Maver Larford complex on the Specimen Pool.  A really disappointing turn out saw just 6 teams competing this year.  Whilst not perhaps on top form the venue produced a cracking match with all the top 6 anglers weighing over 21 kilos.

Nisa Waveney Bait Tech Red’s, Jack Gill, was top individual weighing a tremendous 61kilos 980 gms of mainly good sized carp from peg 8.  Alex Lill from Worksop took second with 50kilos 660gms from peg 2.  Third place went to Jordan Hall fishing for Casts Bag em Baits with 38kilos 720gms from peg 4.

2nd Intermediates Team Tameside 2015

(2nd Intermediates Team - Tameside Matrix Bait Tech Gold)

There was a tie on 27 points for top spot in the team event. Casts Bag em Baits just securing the Championship with a slightly better weight aggregate of 102 kilos 700gms. With an aggregate of 98kilos 580 gms Tameside Matrix Bait Tech Gold had to settle for runners up. Third team with 23 points was Worksop & District.

It proved to be a very successful and enjoyable day with great thanks due to the fisheries teams at both Maver Larford  and Solhampton.
