The new Preston Innovations Classic, a 10-team event organised by the Angling Trust (AT) to decide which team will represent England in the World Club Championship next year, will take place over the weekend of September 25th and 26th on the Warwickshire Avon at Evesham.
The competition, with bloodworm and joker allowed, will see the top 10 Division One National teams competing for four hours over both days and Dick Clegg, the AT’s International Events Director, said: “This will be a real test for the 10 teams of six anglers involved and I expect it to be a interesting and challenging two days. Whichever team wins through to represent England next year will fully deserve to be there, as every member of the team will have to perform to his peak in order to get through.”
Spectators are welcome to watch the proceedings, with parking and refreshments available at Raphael's Restaurant in Boat Lane, Evesham. The matches will take on the Crown Meadow and Hampton Ferry match length.
