World Games ‘Gold’ for Eddie Shannon

World Games ‘Gold’ for Eddie Shannon

Our very own Eddie Shannon had the honour of pulling for Great Britain in Wroclaw, Poland. Eddie, originally part of Derryogue and now pulling with Bancran was selected for the Great Britain squad that was made up from pullers from Norton...

It is a huge honour for Eddie to have been selected for the squad, let alone be picked to pull on the first team and the fact that Eddie was selected as No. 1 on the rope illustrates his importance within this historic win. 

This is a truly  fantastic achievement for the Great British team and tug of war that we should be proud of.  The NITOWA are sure Eddie will remember this experience for the rest of his live and we understand the commitment, not just the training, but travel, financial and family that has gone into this superb result.
