Browning-backed Ossett win regional winter league final round, and the overall Angling Trust regional league.

The sixth and final round was meant to be on the Selby canal, however with flood conditions on the Selby it was moved to the Thorne section of the Stainforth and Keadby canal. 

On the day the team put in another sterling performance to win the round with six section wins, a 3rd place, and a 4th to finish with 13 points. Daiwa Dons claimed second place, with Drennan Barnsley Blacks in third.  

Helen Dagnall showed her class winning her section and the match with 14lb. John Ibbotson came in with 10lb for third overall and another section win. 

Mr consistent Ben Taylor went on to win his section again, which puts him on three sections in three matches at Thorne. He was also fifth overall. 

Micheal Bower also won his section for the second match on the bounce, followed by Ray Marklew with another section win, and finally John Goodwin also putting in a section winning performance. 

The team win on the day put Ossett level with Barnsley Blacks after six rounds with the league win going to Ossett on section count backs.

A great result for the team as we draw to the end of a very successful year. 

Thanks again to John Waterhouse and team on running a great league yet again. Always a thankless task, but always run smoothly.
