A Cromer Academy school boy has described his delight after winning a silver medal in the Junior U16 World Shore Angling Championships.
Adam Molloy, 15, attended the competition in France and said: 'When the results were first announced it was a mix of happiness and emotion that all the work we had put in had paid off.'
His parents, Helen and Iain, added: 'We are very proud of his success and to see him on the podium with his medal made all the travelling worthwhile.'
Mr Molloy, who is part of the Norfolk Angling Club, said: 'Training started three years ago, and this means regular trips to Dorset, Hampshire and Sussex throughout the year where the team managers assess our abilities and lend their knowledge to further our skills.'
He continued: 'Cromer Academy have been very supportive and follow my successes closely, my friends think it pretty cool!'
