Barnsley Storm to Winter League Title


Barnsley 2020 Press release

The Largest multi-venue match in the country took place last weekend which saw three hundred anglers competing in the prestigious Angling Trust Winter League Final. Conditions for the Saturday saw a continuation of the awful winter conditions which kept weights down across both venues.

The Format for the final is five anglers at Decoy Lakes and five anglers on the infamous Drains system, meaning the well rounded teams always seem to rise to the top.

It was Drennan Barnsley Blacks that returned to winning ways, storming the contest with an exceptional performance on Decoy where they carded just 13 points to add to their 18 points from the Fens. Stand out anglers were; Will Freeman who won the whole of the drains individually, weighing over 25lb or roach, Nick Crooks who put an excellent net of roach and skimmers together in March to win his section and Andy Geldart and James Dent who both won their respective lakes on decoy with over 100lb carp, F1s, and barbel.

Second on the day on section win countback were Daiwa Dorking, who scored 50 points and one section win and rounding out the top three were Drennan Oxford who also scored 50 points but didn't win any sections.

All results can be found at Match Angling Results Service - Maggets and a break down the section performances of all the teams.

The Angling Trust would like to thank all the league organisers from around the country in making this contest the pinnacle of winter angling and to all the anglers that take part throughout.


1. Drennan Barnsley Blacks 31 points

2. Daiwa Dorking 50 points (1 section win)

3. Drennan Oxford 50 points (no section wins)
