Keith Mott


The President and Committee of the L&SECC are very proud to present this our third ever Grand Phone-In Squeaker Auction Sale in aid of our newly formed transporter fund. Although we have a good ageing working vehicle, at the moment, the committee have been looking too the future of our Classic Club and realise that in a few seasons time it will need replacing. Pigeon Transporters are not cheap equipment to purchase these days and the Committee feel now is the time to start building a fund, with the view to purchasing our new vehicle when needed. Classic life vice president, Keith Mott, has obtained a wonderful draft of top class 2009 youngsters to have a phone in auction, to help raise funds to purchase our future transporter. We think it’s fair to say that this is one of the best drafts of youngsters ever put together for auction. This is a once in a life time opportunity for the general fancy to obtain young birds from some of the very best lofts in the world of pigeon racing, sprint and long distance.

Lot 1. Mark Gilbert of Windsor: Bernard de Weerdt and Eric Cannon bloodlines. Mark has become a legend in National and Classic racing in recent seasons, and his loft must rate as one of the very best in the sport. 1st International Dax, 1st NFC Saintes / Pau, 1st L&SECC Bergerac, 1st L&SECC Guernsey and so on. A brilliant fancier!

Lot 2. Keith & Sue Arnold of Leamington Spa: Keith has probably the best loft of sprinting Staf Van Reets in Europe today, winning in 2008: 1st Federation ten times in twelve old bird races, also winning the Federation twice with the same bird in the only two young bird races competed in and 1st & 2nd Gold Ring. Keith Arnold has won the RPRA Region Sprint Award three years on the trot and was 1st RPRA UK Sprint Champion in 2006 / 2007 and 2nd RPRA UK Sprint Champion in 2008. A brilliant fancier with fantastic pigeons!
