Claire house Charity Match

The annual Clare house charity match took place on a cold and wet November 5th 2017. Once again Port Sunlight Angling Club was asked to field a team. The event has grown from 2016 with 12 teams of 8 anglers taking part. The venues for the match included our own Fireman’s pond,, Lingmere, Yew tree, Cheshire oaks, and the Brickworks. The visiting anglers at the Fireman’s were full of praise for our water although it didn’t fish as well as it can do due to the sudden change in the weather. The result of the matches to find the overall winning team is always a closely guarded secret and not revealed until the presentation evening.

On the presentation evening there were lots of raffle prizes to be won donated from local tackle shops and manufacturers also 2 memberships of PSAC were up for grabs. There was also a raffle for a coaching session with Jaimie Hughes who was a junior member of PSAC many years ago.

The result was announced and the team from Lingmere won once again with Yew tree second and Port Sunlight third.

The money raised for this worthy cause is increasing every year with the final total for 2017 being £16,859 which is a fantastic achievement.


Following on from our proven track record of P.S.A.C.’s prudent use of Lottery and Sport England money, to provide an inspired facility, we have been successful in securing Angling Trust/ Environment Agency funding bid to improve our Fireman’s Pond


We are delighted to inform you that the Angling Trust has agreed to award Port Sunlight Angling Club a grant towards the ‘Fireman’s Pond Project’. The award will contribute to the costs of the purchasing an Oxybox aerator and the cost of a L2 coach qualification. As part of the successful bid the club have agreed to make a contribution toward the wind turbine and diffuser element of the Oxybox unit, and in-kind contributions in volunteer time for installation and maintenance for the aerator and coaching equivalent to at least £2600.

The monies have very kindly been made available by the Environment Agency who have again reinvested part of the proceeds raised from rod licence sales in England, something that both they and the Angling Trust are keen to see increased.

P.S.A.C. realises that Junior anglers are the future of our sport and are actively working toward the Angling Trust’s new Fishmark

Fishmark replaces the national club award called Clubmark and sees the accreditation come more in line with angling instead of a generic all sport club award.

Fishmark is now the recognised angling club accreditation that is awarded to a Club when they achieve the criteria to demonstrate they have achieved nationally recognised standards of Club Management, Child protection and duty of care, sports equality and ethics and Management of Activities.

The main difference between the new Fishmark award and the previous Clubmark award is that Fishmark has been split into two levels, Standard and Advanced. This enables some Clubs that never achieved the strict criteria in Clubmark, such as high levels of fishing activities, to achieve accreditation at a standard level. With these Clubs being able to apply for the Fishmark award it means that they can ensure they are working at the required levels of child protection and club management because the minimum requirement is the same for these categories in both Standard and Advanced levels. The change ensures that ALL member Clubs have the opportunity to ensure they are delivering at a high level of safety and development.


 The benefits of being a Fishmark accredited Club are:

•Easier access to Sport England and some local authority funding

•More professional management of your Club

•Support to develop and modernise your Club

•Improved integration between schools, community and your Club

•Increased publicity for your Club

•Increased membership for your Club

•Improved access to coaches and coaching at your Club

•More recognition from your County Sports Partnership(CSP), local authorities and schools

•Higher profile for your Club

•Increased safety for ALL your member

•Improved framework and focus on Club development

 Plaese take the time to read the North West Fisheries News Letter



On the 17th of July 2012 it was announced that we have been successful in our application for lottery funding with another £2,000 from the Thomas Cook children’s charity fund.

Inspired Facilities is focused on making it easier for local community and volunteer groups to improve and refurbish sports clubs or transform non-sporting venues into modern grassroots sport facilities.
Part of Places People Play, Sport England’s programme to deliver a London 2012 legacy of increased mass participation in sport, Inspired Facilities is investing £50 million of National Lottery funding in up to 1000 community sports projects between 2011 and 2014.

We are one of only 3 successful bids for Angling projects and I would like to thank Frank Duckers for his hard work in securing the bid on our behalf. The Sport England web site reads;

'Anglers are to benefit from an Olympic legacy investment in Port Sunlight Angling Club in the Wirral. The award of £43,000, from Sport England’s Inspired Facilities fund, will enable the club to make improvements to the existing pond and surrounding areas. The work will add new fishing pegs, car parking, landscaping and access paths to the site and introduce more fish to the pond. The club aims to improve access for young people and disabled people and to increase coaching and participation opportunities for existing and new members and local community groups'

The Fireman’s Pond site will now be the subject of a further consultative phase with local land owners and Councillors in order to best bring our plans to fruition
