Trevor Mellard Memorial Trophy


For many years Trevor, as Hon. Secretary, was key to the day to day running of MMBFC.

Sadly Trevor passed away suddenly on September 4th 2020.
 
The executive committee have decided to hold an annual competition in Trevor's memory.

We are not a competitive angling club, with the majority of anglers fishing for pleasure or the pot rather than fishing matches, so the competition will be for the longest bass caught by a club member. 

There will be a prize of £100 for the inaugural competition.
