The application forms for the U18s and U22s England Youth Trial nominations are now available for download from the Angling Trust website, and must be completed in full and returned to the Angling Trust in Nottingham, no later than 20th March 2010.
The 2010 Sensas Team England U18s and Drennan Team England U22s will compete at the World Youth Championships in Italy.
This year the first trial for the England Youth Coarse Angling Trials will be held on Saturday 10th April at Gold Valley Lakes.
These trials will be pole only and bloodworm and joker will be the predominant baits. Baits will be available to order in advance and can be collected at the trial.
Mark Downes, England Youth Team Manager stated “This year’s Youth Championships will be in Italy on a large canal that looks as if it will be full of skimmer bream. It will almost certainly be a pole and bloodworm event and I feel it will be a good one for us.
Steve Sanders and myself will be looking for strong pole anglers with a good grounding in bloodworm and joker fishing and the ability to fish under pressure.
There will be an initial U18s trial at Gold Valley Lakes, and then the U22s will be put through their paces at Packington Fisheries in the Midlands.”
