Bristol Rovers v Bristol City Charity Carp Match
This year will be the fourth year in a
row we have held the match, and for
the second year in a row, it is in aid of
the Children’s Hospice South West.
The match is between fans of Bristol
Rovers and Bristol City football clubs
and is called the Divvy Cup, named
after Bristol City fan Mark “Divvy”
Saunders who sadly passed away
from cancer in 2014. This year’s event
is again a 48-hour carp match and is
being held over the weekend of 7th to
9th of June at Acorn Fishery, Kingston
Seymour, Somerset BS21 6XS.
We have the whole venue for the
weekend, and anyone is welcome to
bring their kids down to have a go at
fishing in the small lake with tackle
and bait supplied. There is also a BBQ
in the afternoon, which is free for all,
but there are donation buckets if anyone wants to make a donation to the
charity. Fishing wise, it’s fished with
seven pairs per team but only two
rods per pair allowed. The team with
the overall highest weight wins. Bristol Rovers Gas Angling Squad have
won it three years on the trot, so the
City boys will be trying to get their
hands on the trophy this year.
The main way we raise money is
through our raffle and auctions for
prizes we’ve had donated to us. We
have some good fishing auction
prizes this year including a 48-hour
guest session with me on Lodge
Lakes syndicate in Thatcham, a 48hour guest session with me at Dinton
Pastures White Swan and a week’s
fishing for two at Clearwater Lakes in
France. There are also a couple of golf
four-balls at Tracy Park Golf Club
being auctioned at Tracy Park and
Kendleshire golf courses in Bristol.
Bids can be made by visiting the Bristol City and Rovers Charity Fishing
Facebook Page, where there will also
be a list of raffle prizes and details of
where to buy tickets. Please let me
know if you want any more information. n
