A huge thank you to Keeper Paul Marsh for hosting the 1st of 2 of our Field Trials this season.
A misty foggy day with plenty of scent. The trial was set in woodland which gave challenging hunting ground with plenty of cover and pheasants for the spaniels. This was a first Field Trial for many of the young spaniels.  The team of Guns shot well ensuring plenty of retrieves.  Thank you to judges Wesley Thomas and Steve Brankin for giving their time and experience to the competitors.  A  big Shout Out to Field Trial Secretary Martin Ashman for organising and reorganising the Venue with many last minute changes to the card.
Also many thanks to the Stewards/Game Carriers and Helpers.
A most enjoyable day!

A Cold, frosty day on excellent Spaniel ground which made a challenging Trial for handlers and spaniels.

A very big thank you to Steve Brankin and his team for kindly stepping in to host the Trial after the original ground unfortunately became unavailable. Many thanks to the Judges, for helping out at short notice.  Thank you to the guns, for shooting for the Trial ensuring all the spaniels  got a retrieve.  A great sporting day for the little Cockers with a variety of cover. Much appreciation to the Helpers, Joanna, Ryan, Howard and Paul. The hot beverages supplied by Steve were very welcome on this Winters Day.

Well done to all in the awards.
