Drennan backed boys clinch victory. Drennan Banbury Gunsmiths have won the river Thames Championship. The match was fished by 18 teams of six on the Thames from Lechlade through to Tadpole bridge near Bampton. With the recent rain the river had some much needed flow and colour, and the fish wanted to feed – but the very strong winds, mainly downstream, made presentation very difficult and this kept the weights down.
