Kirkman is flying high

ANDREW Kirkman, of Butterwick, was the winner of Boston Central Racing Pigeon Club’s highly competitive race from Newton Aycliffe on Saturday.

His near neighbours, Mr and Mrs Brian Garnham were in second place.

The in-form lofts of Marek Kula, Upsall and Frost, and Dariusz Pelka, all featured prominently.

Dariusz, unfortunately, was denied, by an error in the report, the credit he deserved for having the fastest bird in town last week, and, indeed, winning the strong Peterborough and District Federation for the second time in the first three weeks of the young bird season.

RESULTS: Boston Central RPC (12-404): 1 Andrew Kirkman 1408, 2 Mr and Mrs Brian Garnham 1403, 3, 4 and 5 Marek Kula 1390 and 1389.950 (2), 6 Upsall and Frost 1385, 7 and 8 Dariusz Pelka 1383.913 and 1383.207, 9 Upsall and Frost 1375, 10 Terry Appleby and Dtr 1373, 11 D Pelka 1371, 12 A Kirkman 1369.
