Rain delays pigeon results

THE weather was again the dominant factor in pigeon racing over the weekend.

It delayed the North Road Championship race from Fraserburgh, in which Boston-area fanciers were competing, until Monday. And then, day-long rain had an influence on the race.

The best-placed Boston fancier in the provisional placings is back-to-form Carl Upsall, finishing fourth just in front of Mr and Mrs Bob Boulton, of Skegness.
