Trust seeks young talent

The Angling Trust is seeking young talented anglers to take part in the England U18s and U23s coarse trials.

This year the U18s and U23s World Championships will be held in Slovenia on July 28 and 29.

The U23s trial will be held on the Gloucester Canal on Saturday 14th April and the U18s trial on Saturday 28th April at Gold Valley Lakes.

Both trials will be fished to international rules and on each day there will be two three hour sessions.

Applicants for both trials must impress the England Youth Managers, Mark Downes (U23s) and Steve Sanders (U18s). They will be looking for talented youngsters who have the ability to fish under pressure.

Trial application forms are available by contacting Sandra Drew, Competitions and Events Manager, Angling Trust at or by telephoning 0115 9061 301.
