Lanarkshire News - Sedgefield Race

Sedgefield Race

Light cloud and sunshine the race conditions appeared good for a steady flight back into Scotland. The liberation took place at 08:50hrs, with a smaller convoy of 900 birds and 3 Fauldhouse club baskets. Think most people have shut up shop for the season.

The distance was around the 130 mile from Sedgefield to the winning loft of GWP Macaloney. Each week the same result the Macs on the top of the leader board. Its a remarkable journey of dedication and class pigeons that produce these outstanding performances. The white flag has been risen in many a loft throughout Lanarkshire, but not these guys.

Their birds are a picture of health and all tuned to win first prize each week. 

This weeks winner is a mixture of all their top lines, Camelot, Kittle, NellyBoss, Lambrecht. It’s testament to their stock pigeons, real quality! Working on the basis of most being tried and tested racers, retired to stock. Its scary the amount of their top performance pigeons have been stopped for stock but there has been no loss of performance.

This weeks winer for GWP Macaloney

This weeks winner "56" this weeks winner for GWP Macaloney

Well done again to Wullie & Paul Macaloney There’s no stopping these guys! 

This week they were pushed to the wire (On the same yard) by Lewis McAuley of Clarkston club, who in his first year in Lanarkshire federation flying only a small team of birds (started with 15) has only been beaten by two lofts in the federation over the last three races. Top flying and he looks like a serious contender for the future!

His winner is out of one of his best racers when he raced in his old loft location. A blue cock that was out of a pair of birds purchased from Woodroffe Bros of Sunderland. The dam is out of a John Crook/Dalgleish cock that bred his 1st sec D ,28th Open Ypres 2016 when paired to a dark hen that was 1st NW federation Ypres, in turn her mother bred by Davie Hunter from Plean, was also 1st Federation Ypres winning 6th Open SNFC. This hen won a few prizes including 38th Open Gold Cup Alencon.

Lewis McAuley

Lewis McAuley has hit the ground running in his new federation, taking 3rd,4th federation. On the back of 2nd federation last week 

Lewis second pigeon this week is the same pigeon that was 2nd Federation last week, bred by Woodroffe Brothers, Sunderland. 

Had the pleasure to put these birds through at marking and they handled extremely well and of a nice type.

Dave Love of Clarkston club continued his cracking season putting three in the top 15 of the section. Again his pigeons were looking great!


In the west section James & Gary Green made it 3 in a row of section wins another loft that the quality is shinning .

JJK Gillon had a top race wining the first three in the east section. Well done Joe snr, Joe jnr and Kelly   

The race was a mixed bag with plenty of empty perches at clocking. But what’s new. Doesn't look like this side of the country is providing safer racing for the birds. What’s the answer?

Think racing when falcons are at their heaviest population isn't the answer.
