Angling Trust Anglers with Disabilities National Championship 2021
Saturday 17th July 2021
Packington Somers, Meriden
30C and bright sunshine was lovely for the competitors but did nothing for the fish which in the main were pretty unresponsive making it a difficult match for most. Spread across Siblings A & B and Little Gearys gave the competitors plenty of room to do battle. Adjacent pegs on Siblings B proved the place to be with Ethan Etherington putting in a fine performance to obliterate the field, fishing a multitude of baits at 13m, 6m and down the edge on peg 9. Ethan finished the day
with 57.105Kg of F1’s and was crowned the Anglers with Disabilities National Champion for 2021. At the next peg 7, Paul Logan got off to a flyer of a start and was well in front of Ethan for the 1st half of the match but in the end his swim faded in the latter stages of the match and he had to settle for the runner up spot with 39.600Kg. Shaun Scriven, pegged on Little Gearys peg 5 took 3rd place with 25.325Kg of carp caught on method feeder.
The Angling Trust would like to thank John Burchall and his team at Packington Somers for their help and assistance on the day.
