This week I had a phone call from Mark Downes to say I was in the Worlds team for Croatia, I was over the moon.

The Angling Trust broke the news on their website.

The Angling Trust are pleased to announce the England call up of Callum Dicks who will be joining the Drennan Team England squad for the FIPSed Nations World Championship in Croatia on 13th and 14th September 2014. Joining Callum is; Will Raison, Alan Scotthorne, Sean Ashby, Des Shipp and Steve Hemmingray and (Joint Managers) Mark Downes and Mark Addy.
Mark Downes said of the selection of Callum “Callum has done brilliantly this week in the European Championship in Belgium. He works hard at his sport and despite his age shows an amazing amount of confidence, technical ability and water craft. I have watched Callum develop in recent seasons since leaving the Under 23s International scene, and I am confident he is the first of a new generation of top class youngsters who are emerging onto the "International" match scene who will make up the England team for years to come. Already well travelled with podium places in Italy, France and Belgium, he is a great all-rounder and I am sure he will be an asset to the team especially by keeping the old hands on their toes.”
