We were contacted via Facebook by Andrew Shaw Regarding some medals dating back to 1914. A copy of Andrew's post is below along with the pictures he kindly shared.
 
Hi guys. Not an angler myself but I thought I would share some photographs of my late Grandfather’s & late Uncle’s fishing medals. I never knew either of them but these medals are in my possession & date back to 1914 when my Grandfather, George Shaw, was a member of the club. I see that the club was first founded in 1911, maybe he was a founding member?? He was chairman of the L&DAA in 1933 & I have his gold button hole badge. He died in 1936. I did try to enquire some years ago to see if there were any records but I was told that the Association has become divided over the years. Maybe someone might know more of the history which I would be interested to hear.

On Monday 9th December Liverpool District continued with its policy of stocking the canal and took delivery of 1100lbs of silver fish that were stocked into the canal at Maghull. It's the continued support of anglers purchasing memberships and match anglers peg fees that allow us to stock and improve the fishing for members.
