A trio of Drennan Oxford men filled the frame on the Avington stretch of the Kennet & Avon Canal.
This was a 24-peg practice open for the forthcoming Oxford Winter League and the weights were good despite the heaviest frost of the year. Tony Hobbs won the match with 13lb 11oz from Peg 1 below the lock. He had a bream and big perch on chopped worm down the middle plus over 4lb of roach. Ian Young was 2nd from Peg 3 with 8lb 8oz catch of mostly roach and Michael Denton was just behind in 3rd with another 8lb-plus catch of mostly roach.
