International Events Manager, Dick Clegg in collaboration with the team manager Dave Brooks and England coach Joe Roberts have selected a team to take part in the FIPSed Ladies World Angling Championships in Portugal later this year. 

The event will take place on 23rd/24th August in Coruche on the river Soria, a venue that has been used on several previous occasions by the Portuguese Federation.The success of the England Ladies team winning gold in Slovenia in 2013 has prompted the England management to retain the same six anglers who made up last year’s Championship squad.  

The team comprises; Wendy Locker, Emma Pickering, Sam Sim, Julie Abbott,  Helen Dagnall and Jeanette Halliday. The team will also be joined by Abbie Kendall who will travel with the squad to gain international experience.
