Mid Cheshire.


There has been a break in the racing and some dodgy weather to go with it so some have decided not to race but as it turned out those who did had a good race. There have been a lot of bad races this year and this last weekend the National Saintes birds were held over and then moved to a shorter race point which I hear has not gone down well. But we have to admit that for some reason the major Nationals have had a bad time of it this year.  If you look back at the weekends they were racing the weather was not good to them. On the other hand, specialist clubs racing on alternative weekends have enjoyed good racing, I suppose that’s the way things go, you win some you lose some.


The first weekend saw the Middlewich 5B at Tewkesbury where Dickens & Wilkinson with a chequer cock (see photo) on 1508ypm with dad David taking the next three positions on 1478.2/1478.0/1467 ypm.  They were raced in the South West Cheshire Fed where 29 members sent 514 birds that were liberated at 9.25am in a light South wind. From what I am told they had a good race with most clocking well and the Fed winners are Mick & Wendy Mellor on 1528ypm and were also 2nd & 6th by their standards this team have had a lean season which we all do at some time or another.


The fed then went on to Cheltenham when 55 members sent 1083 birds that were liberated in a south wind.

Colin Lindop took the first 4 positions in the fed with his winner clocking up 1678ypm.


The Middlewich 5B saw 9 members send 125 with Alan Woodcock taking the 1st & 2nd recording vels of 1595/1594.9ypm.

3rd goes to Dickens & Wilkinson who were on 1573ypm ahead of K Bosson & Son who clocked up 1571ypm.   


The Middlewich FC were with the Mid Cheshire Fed when 41 members sent 873 birds to Worcester and liberated at 8.45am in a South West wind.

The winners are S Herbert & Son Keith who topped the list with a vel of 1719ypm.

The Middlewich club was won by W Wilson & Son who were also 2nd recording vels of 1520/1518ypm ahead of Dickens & Wilkinson 3rd clocking up 1514ypm.


Over at Acton Bridge their latest race was from Worcester when Jones Bros took the first 4 positions on 1697/1691/1678/1654ypm.

These 4 were 6th 9th 12th & 17th Fed so a good race all round for the team.


Photos this week include Dickens & Wilkinson’s Tewkesbury winner.

Our photographer at the Nantwich Show came back with the winner of one of the shorter channel races, we are told it is a white cock of excellent breeding.
