Bronze Medal For Drennan Barnsley

Drennan Barnsley Blacks have won team bronze in Slovakia in the 2015 World Club Championship!

The team of Alan Scotthorne, Matt Godfrey, Lee Kerry, Simon Fields, James Dent and Frankie Gianoncelli posted two really con­sistent team scores on the River Váh at Žilina, which lived up to its pre-match repu­ta­tion as a great inter­na­tional venue.

WCC-2015-full-resultSlovakia’s SRZ MsO Levice Sensas won gold medal on home soil with a really impressive 21 points. The home nation clearly had the tac­tics worked out as they com­fort­ably won both days, including four out of five sec­tions on Day Two!

The Czech Republic’s RSK Pardubice Colmic took a very com­mend­able silver-medal pos­i­tion with 37 points.

Well done to all!

Good Luck To Barnsley Blacks In Slovakia

Drennan Barnsley Blacks are proudly rep­res­enting England in the World Club Championship this weekend.

Barnsley team members (from left): Lee Kerry, Simon Fields and James Dent.

Barnsley team mem­bers (from left): Lee Kerry, Simon Fields and James Dent.

This year they are com­peting on Slovakia’s longest river, the River Váh at Žilina in north-west Slovakia. The venue is around 120 miles from the cap­ital city, Bratislava, and close to both the Czech and Polish borders.

The main match length is 2km away from Žilina hydro­elec­tric dam with an average width of 60 metres. The main target will be vimba up to 1kg and barbel up to 3kg but trout, carp, perch, dace, roach, chub, bleak, grayling and pike are also present. Twenty two teams of five from all over Europe are involved with the match decided on points over two four-hour events.

The exper­i­enced Barnsley squad con­sists of Alan Scotthorne, Matt Godfrey, James Dent, Lee Kerry, Frankie Gianoncelli and Simon Fields. Some of the anglers are already familiar with the Váh, none more so than Alan Scotthorne, who won one of his five gold medals fur­ther downstream.

It sounds like an excel­lent fish-catching venue, so we hope it lives up to its poten­tial. Good luck to all of the teams competing!
