Just a couple of days to go before the 2019 Phantom Inland Championship on the 1st & 2nd June hosted at and kindly sponsored by P&B. The forecast for the weekend is looking great with the rare combination of sun and wind!

If turnouts at events early in the season are anything to go by we are hoping for a bumper entry this year, particularly with the event being centrally located for all regions.

It's too early to call who the front runners may be, but promising performances have been noted at other events so far this season and with support likely to be from all across the country the challenge to be crowned Inland Champion could be from a number of individuals.

From the South Alister Morely, Mike Tustin and Nick Orman all have form and have consistently been seen at the top of the fleet.

The Eastern gang will no doubt provide a large contingent from the 'Creeksea Massive' with Bob Portway, Matt House, Chris Roberts and Phil Longley all with potential to pull off a winning performance and not forgetting 'new boy' Terry Crook.

The Midlands fleet boast three recent national champions, Harry Bridden, Will Gulliver and Andy Couch - last years winner. In addition John 'Titch' Wayling is currently showing pace and on home waters he could pull off the big one.

Not forgetting the Northern contingent headed up by Adam Perry, Richard Knott and Ed Thomas who can all perform well.

The Inland Championship forms the first event of the P&B Phantom Midland Series consisting of five events including Carsington S.C. (13th July), Shustoke S.C. (22nd September), Blithfield S.C. (6th October) culminating at Graham Water S.C Winter Championships (26/27th October) - 3 out of 5 events to count.
