Ugs Eastern Counties branch held their all age stake at Ampton by kind permission of Peter Rushbrook.

Judges: Terry Prentice, Mike Jennings, Andy Mutimer, Doug Laflin. Mike and Andy on the right Terry and Doug on the left.

We started in a walking in mustard the guns shot extremely well, with dogs picking birds behind. This made the judges decision a bit easier for putting dogs out. The last partridge was shot falling behind a tree. Dogs were sent failing to pick, judges walking out and picked up the bird, leaving one dog. The judges called the trail over making Mr J & Mrs C M Elsey with Mick Elsey handling Marsepark Tramp the winner for which he was awarded the Posterngate Trophy, a Dog & Field voucher and a Skinner’s voucher.

A big thank you to Lindsay Lampe coming in to dog steward the helpers carrying game.
