Enter The Drennan Knockout Cup

Entries are now being accepted for this year’s Drennan Knockout Cup.


This prestigious event is run by Match Fishing magazine with anglers competing over five rounds on a mixture of commercial fisheries, canals and running water. From a starting lineup of over 100 anglers, just four will ultimately qualify for the two-day Grand Final at the idyllic Docklow Pools in Herefordshire. The winner collects a £5,000 cheque, with the runner up picking up £1,000. The winner of each of the four qualifying heats also picks up a £500 cheque courtesy of Drennan International.

To enter, anglers must either be invited or win a place via one of the three qualifiers taking place at Barston Lakes on the 8th April, Lindholme Lakes on the 22nd April or Gold Valley Lakes on the 6th May. Click here to enter a qualifier.

The deadline for all invited anglers to confirm their entry is Friday 27th April 2016. Visit the Match Fishing website for the list of invited anglers and for more details.
