Football legend David Seaman catches seagull by mistake while fishing

FOOTBALL great David Seaman has revealed he caught a seagull by mistake while fishing.

The former England and Arsenal goalkeeper hooked the bird when it flew down and tried to steal his bait.

David, 57, told the Radio X podcast: “I threw my bait out.

“Then all of a sudden a seagull came down and grabbed my bait.

“It started to try and take off with it.

“I had to reel it in, get it into my net, take the hook out and let it go.

“I also caught about four fish in an hour.

“But, yeah, I caught a seagull as well.”

David was made an MBE after winning 75 England caps in a career lasting from 1981 to 2004.

He lives by the Kennet river, which flows into the Thames.

And he declares: “I love my fishing.”
