The Angling Trust are delighted to announce that Joseph James Law will once more sponsor the England Ladies Coarse Angling Team this February, as they venture to South Africa to participate in the FIPSed 26thWorld Coarse Angling Championships for Ladies along with many other disciplines in the upcoming World Fishing Games.
The competition will take place from 15th– 16thFebruary in the city of Vereeniging in Gauteng province, using the Vaal River, and the team of six ladies and their two managers are preparing to head to the city early February to allow for plenty of practice. Joseph James Law previously sponsored the team last year, when they attended the World Coarse Angling Championships for Ladies 2018 in Wroclaw, Poland.
Dave Brook’s, one of the teams’ managers said “The extension of Joseph James Law’s sponsorship to the ladies is brilliant. These lasses deserve everything, and I hope we can carry on our relationship with Joseph James Law in the future. I know it’s going to be a tough venue in South Africa with alien fish once again being the target, but the full squad will give their all out there for everyone back home.”
Managing Director of Joseph James Law, Andrew Settle is a keen Angler himself, so he is extremely passionate about sponsoring the England Ladies Team. Andrew said, “JJL is absolutely delighted to agree with the Angling Trust to sponsor the ladies team for 2018-2019. I was lucky enough to attend the last event and the dedication of the management and team is phenomenal. The firm’s brands are replicated in the team- hard work, will to win and going the extra mile to achieve success. Good luck and bring home the gold!”
James Lewis, Competitions Development Manager at Angling Trust said, “We are incredulously grateful to receive continued support from Joseph James Law and it’s great to see companies from outside of the angling sphere becoming an integral sponsor. Team England Ladies are once more doing all they can to raise funds to support their participation in World Championships and this additional sponsorship from JJL will allow the ladies to concentrate their efforts on the diverse fishing at hand.”
The Vaal River in Vereeniging measures in at 1,120km long and its flow is managed by the Vaal Dam, which is 37km upstream of the city. The team will be heading out to South Africa in just a few weeks to prepare for the competition and to familiarise themselves with the river and its surroundings.
