BURTON & SOUTH DERBYSHIRE FEDERATION

MR & MRS KEN LYCETT AND J2O DO THE HAT TRICK, 3 X 1ST FED IN 2013

SATURDAY JULY 6TH SAW THE LAST INLAND RACE OF THE OB SEASON WHEN 123 MEMBERS SENT 1334 BIRDS TO BATH. THEY WERE LIBERATED AT 09-00 INTO A LIGHT SOUTH WEST WIND. THE WIND HERE IN BURTON WAS S.S.E. THERE MUST HAVE BEEN PLENTY OF S.E. IN THE WIND DOWN COUNTRY, AS THE WEST SIDE OF THE FED VIRTUALLY DOMINATED THE FED RESULT. APART FROM TWO AT STRETTON IN 16TH & 20TH POSITIONS, THE REMAINING POSITIONS WERE TAKEN BY HILL RIDWARE AND BARTON PIGEONS, OUR TWO MOST WESTERLY CLUBS.

I DON’T THINK THERE WAS A FANCIER OUT THERE WHO EXPECTED OUR BIRDS TO ACHIEVE THE VELOCITIES THEY DID. THEY WERE CLOSE ON 10 MINUTES EARLIER THAN I THOUGHT? CONGRATULATIONS TO KEN & CATH LYCETT OF HILL RIDWARE. THEY TIMED IN THEIR FANTASTIC YEARLING VANDENABEELE COCK “J2O” TO TAKE 1ST FED ON 1879. THIS COCK HAS NOW WON 3 X 1ST FED THIS SEASON, TWICE FROM KINGSDOWN, ONE IN AN EAST WIND, AND ONE IN A WEST WIND, AND NOW THIS ONE FROM BATH WITH THE WIND UP HIS BACKSIDE, SOME PIGEON!!  SHEASBY & WATSON HAVE HAD A TERRIFIC 7 DAYS.
