England Ladies Shore Angling Team bring home Bronze


England Ladies Bronze 2018

The England Ladies Shore Angling Team prepared well in the week before the start of the 26th FIPS-M World Shore Championships held at Llandudno, Wales from 20th – 27th October with the team out at all hours practicing the match venues trying different tactics.

On the official practice day the ladies finished in a credible third place. Day one saw the team finish in sixth place which was a good starting point to move forward. Day two saw the ladies finish in fourth place on the day, but still remained in sixth place overall. Day 3 was a better day for the team who came second on the day moving them into third place overall and Day 4 saw the team finish sixth on the day, which was enough to hold onto team bronze

The England Ladies team consisted of; Heather Lindfield, Adele Smith, Kimberley Lawn, Becky Woods, Loraine Perry, Becky Lee Birtwhistle Hodges and Mark Hurcombe (manager).

Mark Hurcombe, England Team Manager said “As the team manager I am very proud of the ladies performance which was brilliant and to get a podium finish with the bronze team medal was outstanding. I would like to thank team supporters Anyfish Anywhere, ASSO, Bassboots and Tronix pro. Also to Sandra Johnson at the Angling Trust for all the hard work she does behind the scenes and also the organising team for the World Shore Championships from Conwy Council, as Clare Sharples and her team were outstanding.”

“The stewards were also great and very helpful and friendly during the World Championship and overall it was a very well organised event with the opening and closing ceremonies both truly spectacular. A big thank you to all the team who did themselves proud and their country. Finally after three years of being so close to a medal we finally got what we had all worked so hard for.”
