Have your say

AFTER the big race of the season, from Lerwick in the Shetland Isles, had been washed out, pigeon fanciers returned to club competition at the weekend with a short race from Wetherby.

Fastest bird into Boston was a two-year-old cock bird belonging to Carl Upsall, winner of the Boston Central Club.

This was one of the entries which had been brought back from Lerwick because the weather was unfit for the 500-mile marathon.

Winners of Boston and District FC, and back to their early season form, were John Hardy and John Burt.
