This October the Under 16s achieved great results at the World shore angling championships in Portugal.

They worked hard over the five days and it paid off with a Silver medal,

It was a great trip away with lots of support from parents and managers. The presentation was spectacular on the beach as the sun set in beautiful warm weather.
A very well organised championship in a fabulous location.
Well done to everyone involved.
