Results from the Disabled International 2010

A Sottish win

 Disabled International Results 20th – 24th June

This year the Disabled International Championship was held on Rutland Reservoir in Northampton, England. This is the premier angling competition for disabled anglers – an event which was started in 1980 – the Year of the Disabled. It has always been known as the ‘Friendly’ International’ though from the outset it was obvious that the competition would always be keen – and on Rutland the friendly rivalry was in evidence as the four teams set out from the jetty on both days of this two-day match.
At the end of the first day it was evident that Scotland was the team to beat – their lead at that stage was pretty awesome even in the butterfly weather the competitors were experiencing. On day 2 this strong team maintained its form and came in as worthy winners.

The results were as follows:
1st Scotland with 53 fish for 105+lbs
2nd England with 32 fish for 69+lbs
3rd Wales with 31 fish for 66+ lbs
4th Ireland with 24 fish for 49+ lbs
Warmest congratulations must go to the Scottish Team for a fantastic performance.

The top Welsh rod was Lewis Llewelyn from Hirwaun who won the Welsh Trophy.
