Committee Role: To be Sorted

Grant Jump is the one in the team of Match-Aid that does not fish!!

Having a very varied background of skills he is responsible for the inception and design of this website

http://www.match-aid.org.uk

Why join a fishing group? The ethos and drive behind match-aid is infectious where the notion of promoting Junior Angling is in itself fantastic, along with driving forward the opportunities for youngsters to engage in fishing which is worth my time and effort. As with all the team, the time and effort is given willingly to keep this amazing group of individuals on the internet.

Any concerns or questions about the site or match-aid and I'll try my best to answer email me at:

Steve Allen

I started fishing from a very young age mainly due to my late Father being a bailiff and a great all round angler himself, there was a few years were kids come along and I stopped fishing but glad to say the last 7 years have been full on with my son James Allen now being a keen angler himself, I have been involved with Junior Match aid now close to 2 years and can only say I am very proud of the juniors I got involved and selected to fish for Match- Aid with great results at both the pole champs and nationals, lots of medals for 2015 and sure 2016 will get even better results

 Dave Williams

From the age of 8 I was introduced to fishing by my uncle who showed and learnt me a great deal of what I know today, from fishing my local club waters and local canal, the Bridgewater. Moving on with my fishing I have a love of all things commercial, be It fishing for carp or taking a net full of silvers (which I love), and over the years I have fished many of the country's leading commercial waters. For the last 3 years I have been part of a online fishing team called, Fishing In the Northwest doing lots of online blog writing, and fishing a lot of the commercials around the Northwest, and also, just this year I received a sponsorship from Bait-Tech too. Am looking forward to helping out as much as I can within Match-Aid, doing reviews and helping out the youngsters by passing on some of my knowledge and also taking some onboard from them also. If you see me out on the bank, come and say hello. 

Tight lines
Dave.

Dave Watson

My name is Dave Watson I have been fishing for as long as I can remember. The first time I went I was hooked so I was fishing every weekend I love it.

Then when I left school I joined the army couldn't really do much then but when I went on leave I was fishing all the time.

Then in 2010 I was deployed over to Afghan for a 6 month tour I was there 4 months. On the 27th may 2010 I stepped on an IED witch lead to me losing both my legs and my right arm.

I thought I wouldn't be able to fish again but I made it my goal to fish again I spent hours on the bank putting the pieces together to see how I could do it. And then it all came together and now I am sponsored by Maver and I am doing everything I can to show people anything is possible if you just put your mind to it.

I have been fishing since I was 6 yrs old and I am as still as keen as ever, I regularly fish open matches in my area (Suffolk) and do quite well. I fish  about 3 times a week and I  am associated with Bait-Tech,i like fishing commercial lakes using the bomb and wag but also like using a feeder on natural venues for bream and tench. I am a level 2 angling coach with a passion for getting young people out on the bank, I run a fishing club at the mighty Suffolk Water Park for mainly beginners and is very well attended every session.
