CLEGGY AL­WAYS PLAYED BY THE BOOK... HE’LL BE MISSED

Dick not only man­aged, he man­aged to in­spire as well

Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

VER the years I must have paid dozens of trib­utes to Dick Clegg OBE. Well, here is an­other one. team crown won last year and steer­ing his squad to dou­ble bronze in the Dis­abled event.

Dick has rep­re­sented the Angling Trust and NFA in­ter­na­tional teams be­fore them with dig­nity and mas­sive re­spect. He is a man­ager, not suf­fer­ing fools and mak­ing sure that not only did his teams do ev­ery­thing by the book but our op­po­nents did too. His knowl­edge of rules and reg­u­la­tions is as­ton­ish­ing. I don’t mind the odd de­bate but even I won’t query one word of what Dick says!

So, Sir Dick, en­joy your time off. I’m sure you’ll still be mak­ing a nui­sance of your­self to en­sure our teams get a fair crack of the whip.
