No big pike but plenty of fun at the Mdcap’s Paul Grogan Memorial Pike Competition…

16 April: It was certainly not ladies day today as all the pike caught in this Memorial club match were Jack.

It was still a a memorable occasion for John Keogh who won his first club pike match with a pike of 6lb 8oz. 2nd was Trevor Wykes and 3rd was Joe Mcevoy. 4th equal were Chris Grogan and Mickey McGuinness.

An enjoyable outing as always .

Many thanks to Anthony Quinn for his kind sponsorship.
