For the third successive time this season fanciers competing with the North Road Championship Club had to endure a tough race. This time it was from Arbroath, the birds being liberated to face a light head wind on Sunday after a day¡¯s holdover.

Winners were the husband and wife partnership of Dave and Pat Evans, of Alford, Lincolnshire, on a velocity of 1146 yards per minute.

After winning the old hens¡¯ race in 2012, they have been knocking on the door for another big NRCC performance after being runners-up in their Section Two something like five times.

Mick Freeman NRCC Lerwick winner


Only those who have scored a hat-trick on the football field, hit a six at cricket, or dropped a hole in one on the golf course will know of the ecstasy that comes with success on the sports field. These are moments to savour; memories that linger.

Now Mick Freeman is rejoicing in such feelings thanks to the performance of a pigeon he now calls Mad Mick 1 ¨C leaving the door open for any future stars of his Norwich loft to follow the trademark name.

Mad Mick? That is what Mr Freeman is called by his friends, to his face and on-line. Why? ¡°Because I have done a few rum things in my time,¡± he explained.
