At the 11th USIC Angling Championships hosted last week in Coventry by Railsport GB, it was the French team that came away victorious after a closely fought battle with the British team. Close behind in third place was the Belgian team. In the individual standings, a Belgian came out on top (with wins on both of the two competition days), with British anglers David Dawber and Kevin Melville in 2nd and 3rd places. Both David and Kevin work for Network Rail. The other British anglers were Dave Lewis 10th, Rob Dawber 17th, Terry Lancaster 30th and Alan Wright 41st.
The event was based at Network Rail's Westwood Training Centre just outside Coventry, with the angling matches taking place on the River Avon at Evesham, and Makins Fisheries in Wolvey.
More detailed results to follow. Photographs from the event are available here.
