Up-and-coming match angler Mark Taylor has been drafted into the star-studded Shakespeare Superteam squad from rivals Fox Match Tipton after a series of consistent performances caught the eye of captain, Mick Hatchard.

Mick told Match Fishing magazine: “Mark is a young, talented angler with loads of enthusiasm. He has shown ability to catch 100lb of carp and also 4-5lb of small fish on the canal. I feel Mark will be a valuable all rounder and will contribute to the success of the Shakespeare Superteam in the next few years. He will be mixing with the top anglers in the squad, which can only benefit his progress to becoming one of the top anglers in the country.”
