Coronavirus Update – 24th March 2020
Please note that due to the Coronavirus outbreak the next two matches at Top Barn on 5th April and at Hartleton Pool on 19th April have been cancelled. The match programme will continue to be reviewed and updates will appear on this page.
- Please note that the AGM and trophy presentation evening planned for Thursday 30th April has now been postponed to a date to be arranged.
- Until further notice, (and after consulting the Angling Trust) the match programme will continue as planned although control measures to minimise contact when checking in at the venue and when the draw takes place will be implemented. As part of this, it is requested that anglers arrive at the venue with the correct money (normally £12). It is requested that anglers wishing to fish the matches respect these arrangements as the alternative may have to be to cancel the programme altogether. The situation will be reviewed on an on-going basis.
MUAA Match Secretary Richard Webster
It is with great sadness that the Committee has to report that after a long illness MUAA Match Secretary Richard Webster has passed away. Always working hard organising and running matches for the Club, he will be sorely missed.
Acorns Charity Match
After recently organising a very successful charity fishing match on Broadheath fisheries where £776 was raised on the day on behalf of the Worcester Acorns children’s hospice, Malvern Anglers match secretary Richard Webster has continued his efforts to increase this total. Despite fighting a battle of his own against terminal cancer, Richard was able to boost the overall sum of his efforts to a magnificent £2500 by a combination of gaining sponsorship money, badgering businesses and personal door to door collections near his home in Upton-upon-Severn. Consequently, Richard was proud to be able to go to the Acorns charity premises in Bath Road and present the money raised to area fundraiser Mel Hall. Of course, Richard wanted to thank all the people who had helped him raise the money, in particular the businesses and people of Upton as well as all the anglers who supported the charity match.
MUAA AGM and Presentation Evening – Thursday 25th April 2019
Malvern Anglers gathered at Newtown Club for their annual general meeting and trophy presentation. After a welcome by club chairman Ian Goddard and positive reports by club secretary Mick Perks and treasurer John Shaw, the match secretary was pleased to report a very successful year of competitions. The previous year had seen an increased number of participants in club matches that had been held on a variety of different river and pool venues. In particular, the matches had been competed in a good spirit with many close finishes and indeed, the 11 club trophies had been won by 10 different people.
The club expressed their appreciation to Sue Troughton, the riparian owner of the stretch of the river Severn at Holdfast used by the club, and she was invited to present the trophies to the winners.
The picture below shows Sue Troughton presenting the Club Champion Cup to Lee Harman.

Can all members please ensure that when fishing the Club water you clear and take away any rubbish you may have. Also, please take good care of the fish you catch by carefully unhooking and gently placing it in a fish friendly net.
