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.
