Bottesford and District Angling Association host the Norman Chenoweth Memorial Shield on Grantham Canal

The Bottesford and District Angling Association's latest match of the season was held on Sunday.

A sunny and hot day greeted the nine anglers on the Grantham Canal half-mile pound to compete for the Norman Chenoweth Memorial Shield.

The canal fished really well and, with some tench starting to show, the weights were very good.
