Alnwick Sea Anglers fished their last match of the Winter League on Sunday and with only a slight north-easterly sea running, conditions were not ideal.

Only one angler managed to weigh in. Roberto Peruzzo did well to win the match with one cod for 1lb 12oz which was also the heaviest fish.

It has been a winter of mixed results with more cod than the previous season but of a much smaller size.

Anthony Gibbison has had another consistent season, retaining the Winter League, catching 48 fish for a total weight of 103lb 12½oz, runner-up was Willie Morton with 45 fish for 90lb 6½oz, third was I Hall with 35 fish for 69lb 11oz.

Other league standings: Mickey Buck, 23, 55lb 5oz; George Hornsby, 21, 48lb 13½oz; Steve Ayling, 21, 33lb 12½oz; Steve Scott, 15, 31lb 5oz; John Stephenson, 15, 30lb 4½oz; Patrick Porteous, 11, 28lb ½oz; Kevin Donnelly, 12, 23lb; Darren Ferrow, 11, 14lb 14oz; Steve McKee, seven, 14lb 2½oz; Paul Buddles, eight, 13lb 14½oz; Antony Abbott, nine, 12lb 15oz; Adrian Hornsby, five, 7lb 12oz; Roberto Peruzzo, three, 5lb 11oz; Craig Mallaburn, two, 2lb 14oz; Clive Miller, two, 2lb 12½oz.

This season’s trophy winners were Anthony Gibbison who won the Winter League title, most consistent angler and the Mick Hayes Memorial; William Morton won the Marathon and heaviest fish (cod, 8lb 11oz); George Hornsby won the heaviest basket (14lb 12oz); Ian Hall won the singles knock-out and Adrian Hornsby won the specimen fish trophy with a pollack (3lb ½oz).
