With an outstanding performance on day 2 of just 7 penalty points, England leap-frogged the other teams in contention to take Team Gold with 25 points in the 2021 Veterans World Match Fishing Championship on the River Sava, Slovenia.
The team had two sections wins (Steve Sanders and Mark Downes) a second (Bob Nudd) and a 3rd (Roger Marlow). France were second overall on 30 points, with overnight leaders Hungary dropping to bronze with 37 points.
England’s Mark Downes section win with 6.694kg left him on a total of just 3 penalty points, giving him Individual Gold. Roger Marlow took Individual Silver, an agonising 68g away from the second in section that would have seem him pip Mark to the title on weight.
A massive congratulations to the whole Team and Management on a fantastic performance, and to Mark and Roger on their individual medals.
The Team comprised of:
Dickie Carr (Manager and Captain)
