Monday 1st November 2021 saw United Gundog Breeders Association run their first spaniel trial of the season which WuffitMix proudly sponsored alongside Sporting Saint, BASC & ACME. Novice 16 dog cocker stake at Cubley Estate. Hosted by Shane Wood and Mr David Legh. The judges for the day were Geoff Devine-Jones and Kevin Richardson. Guns were David and Ian Ross, Graham Burton and Chris Cadman.
'We started with no rain but soon became wet and blustery but this didn't deter hardened spaniel folks. The cover in the wood was typical beating cover with plenty of birds. The guns shot well with nearly everybody having fushes and retrieves on both sides. I think the judges had their work cut out as the standard was good. But they came to a final decision with those famous two words "trial over"'
The results were as follows:
1st - Paul Seaman & Heathcroft Charles at Pixiefen
2nd - Mark Phelan & Danerw Dipper
3rd - Eli May Ball & Gagglebrook Blue Lagoon of Carsoncroft
4th & Keepers Choice - Dave Jennings & Mallowdale Yapper
Mark Hastelow & Balderlowe Gunner
Terry Carrick & Gwynedd of the Glade at Bullbrond
Guns Choice - John Robertson & Wolferton Ashton
