AN en­cour­ag­ing at­ten­dance of 83 young­sters con­tested the fol­low­ing day’s Na­tional Youth and Ju­nior Canal Cham­pi­onships, on the Shrop­shire Union Canal at Church Ea­ton.

Newly spon­sored by Angling Di­rect, this AT/

CRT event, on Izaak Wal­ton Stafford AA’s waters, was split into two sec­tions for the first time this year – Ju­niors (aged 10-15) and Youths (16-18).

The ju­niors en­joyed best sport, Eng­land in­ter­na­tional Billy Kirk lead­ing the scores with 3.300 kg, from Michael Wall­work on 3.100, while Keiran Wood­ward topped the Youth cat­e­gory with 2.050, ahead of Jack Tay­lor on 1.400.
