25 Sept 2021 – K&ES Novice Stake

On Saturday the 25th Sept 2021 UGS K&ES held our Novice Trial at Orsett. Three drives produced some great shooting for the guns, who gave us a plentiful amount of game on the ground, which in turn made for some skilful retrieving. Thank you to keeper Sid and his team for working so hard and making us feel so welcome, the guns for shooting so well and supporting our event and my wonderful team of helpers who kept the day running smoothly. I am extremely grateful to our Judges, Rodger Ketley, Graham Stanley, Julia Smith and Alistair House, who did a top job.

Second Place to Kilodelta Echo handled by Kevin Warburton
Third Place to Lavanthill Lucy handled by Mike Fleming
