The Championship was a superb occasion with all the dogs having similar ground and a plentiful supply of birds. The trial was held in light woodland with cover of light bramble and bracken. The keepers had worked really hard after the recent snow to ensure that the ground was suitable for the Championship. Thirty four dogs qualified with three withdrawals. Eleven dogs finished the trial without being eliminated. There was a run off between Dai Ormond and Will Clulee for first place, with Will just taking the award. The Cocker Club (Field Trial Section) wishes to congratulate Will Clulee on his win and 3rd and 4th with his other two dogs. (Photos to follow).

THE COCKER CLUB NOVICE AND OPEN STAKES 8 AND 9 OCTOBER 2010
FORD AND ETAL ESTATE, NORTHUMBERLAND

The Cocker Club held their Open and Novice Cocker Spaniel Field Trials on 8th and 9th October 2010 at the Ford and Etal Estate, Northumberland, by kind permission of Wilson Young and the Eskdale Shooting Company Ltd. The judges were Dai Ormond and David Sowerby.

The trial was very successful with a full card and many reserves. Les Hanwell, the head keeper, went out of his way to ensure that there was just the right amount of game for all the dogs. This allowed all the dogs to perform to the best of their ability and to show off their capabilities. The guns were all expert shots and knew exactly what was required for the dogs and this was a key factor that made the trials so successful. Both stakes were held in woodland with bracken and light bramble, perfect for the little Cockers to show off what they could do.

The more experienced dogs came through at the end with Joe Shotton winning the Open Stake in superb style. His bitch Chyknell Hidie did everything required of her with very little whistle or handling. She also won the award for best hunting dog. Will Clulee’s little bitch Midnight Honeysuckle was a clear winner of the Novice Stake. She managed to retrieve a huge hare which was bigger than her, dragging it by the leg to her handler.

There was a great atmosphere at both trials and a superb day was had by all. Thanks to Wilson Young and Bob Clarke of the Eskdale Shooting Company, the keeper Les Hanwell, and Skinners for providing dog food for the winners. Without these people we could not carry out our sport and for this we are eternally grateful.
