England logo updated

The England Veterans Coarse Angling Team will be travelling to Tuscany, Italy from 9th – 16th June to take part in the 12th FIPSed World Veterans Angling Championship being held on Canal Scolmatore.

The team are hoping to do one better than last year when they took double medal glory in Croatia with a team bronze and Stan Binge taking individual silver.

The team are;

Danny Sixsmith

Roger Marlow

Steve Sanders

Billy Hughes

Bob Nudd

Joe Roberts (Manager)

Dicki Carr (Assistant Manager)

Mark Downes (Delegate)

Last weekend saw Joe Roberts, England Team Manager organise an International fundraising 5-hour match at Packington Somers Fisheries which was open to all. In support of the Veterans team the 22 anglers in attendance on the day managed to raise a fantastic £200 for the England Veterans team.

Also helping the England Veterans team this year is Packington Somers Fisheries, Meriden, Coventry, who have generously donated substantial funding towards the team’s participation fees in the World Veterans Angling Championship.

The England Veterans team and the Angling Trust would like to thank Packington Somers Fisheries for their generous donation and also to all the anglers who took part in the match at the weekend for all their fundraising efforts. Without help and support it is very difficult for team’s to cover their own participation fees in World Championships if they don’t have a team sponsor, so everyone is very grateful to Packington Somers Fisheries and all the match anglers at the International fundraiser who have supported the team in providing such generous contributions to help the team compete this year

Everyone would like to wish the team their very best wishes and good luck in the World Veterans Championship this year!
