Stan Harrison :  Secretary + President + Club Founder.

Stan is secretary of the South Manchester Angling Club ''The Original'' who also just happens to be the club original founder from some 45 plus years ago.  He is now also club President following the sad death of Noel Lees our previous long standing one. Stan is a past multiple club match fishing champion and still holds the heaviest match weight caught on a club match by a member.  The Pleasure section of the club guided by Stan with Andy Wemyss ''Bruce'' to his friends will for the foreseeable future concentrate all their efforts on encouraging those anglers who prefer fishing natural fisheries to join us, this to continue the development of the clubs fishery assets for all of our members future enjoyment. Stan worked in IT for most of his working life utilising his considerable knowledge to develop and design the clubs website. He is now also as one would expect our Webmaster controlling the content with him continually updating and posting articles including photo's of fish caught by members. The website he created many years ago has benefited the club by attracting many new members to the club after reading the interesting content that can be found on it.

Andy Wemyss: Chairman & Honarary Member.

Andy, or “Bruce” to his friends, previously held the position for many years and we are pleased to say voted in again as Chairman of the new Pleasure section.  Andy is predominantly a river and specimen Chub angler with him even moving to Herefordshire to be next to the river he loves best the Wye.  Andy is very practically minded when it comes to arranging and planning work required on work parties, this the result of him being a self employed Chippy who is happy making anything out of wood, fitting a kitchen, bathroom and just about any other property building work both inside and outside. Andy is a font of knowledge when it comes to club history and is happy having a chat about it to those interested.




Mike Harrison: Treasurer & Honarary Member.

Mike was voted in at the December 2010 GM and has been the club Treasurer and active club member since joining. Mike is usually the first to put his chest waders on and have water lapping around the top or carrying out work others would more often than not ignore. On top of this, he is the club Treasurer who keeps a close eye on the clubs finances and is a keen official who likes to involve himself in everything that is happening.




Noel Lees: President & Honarary Member. DECEASED - 2nd October 2018.

Noel has been president and a member for longer than most hence why he has retained and held the position from when the club was just starting out.  Joining with his dad who was also a respected member both have over the years put lots of there time and energy into making the club what it is today.  Although he is not able to get out very much these days he is always there for the club and when asked always willing to offer his unbiased advice when required.
