Lanarkshire Federation - Wooler 1 race.
Three in a Row for Barclay McCrindle & Son
Wooler in Northumberland, North East England was this weeks destination for our race. The 3,500 Lanarkshire birds and 26 other club/Federation crates birds were away at 08 30 in a west wind that was fresh on route. The winners made good work of the seventy odd miles, recording a velocity of 1141ypm back into Scotland.

The main talking point in the federation is again the brilliant team performance of Barclay McCrindle & Son who for the "Third week in a Row" has won the Lanarkshire federation. This is truly remarkable considering this is only their third race!

To have such an impact is staggering. They have made everyone sit up and watch what they will do next!
In the section they take the first nine positions and in the Open federation they take the first three positions.
This weeks winner was again bred by Performance Pigeons UK breeding stud of John Short, who is based in Lanarkshire. John pigeons are certainly making a big impact on performances in Lanarkshire with many excellent winners being reported. The 1st Open federation winner breeding is a Janssen base pigeon.
Barclays other birds are bred out of Hermans Bonne, Embreghts Theunis and Van de Velde lines.
Well done to both of you and we all hold our breath to see what is coming this week.
