Thank you to Tim Lester and the team of guns for shooting the trial for us and to all the helpers, markers, stewards and beaters for making the day run smoothly.
Many thanks to the judges, Di Harrison, Gilly Nickols, Dave England and Chris Marshall and to the Keepers James Kingswell and Jack Kingswell.
A lovely day in which the rain managed to hold off, and there were some lovely birds flying and shot over the dogs, with some testing drives to sit in. The three placed dogs went through to the 4th round run-off. There was some good dog work and the awards were well deserved. Huge congratulations go to Keith Broomfield, fresh back from his win in the 2-day Suffolk trial to win our open with the same dog and make it up to a field trial champion.
