There is a new name to go on the honours board of the historic North Road Championship Club.

Now, alongside the great north road fanciers of the past century who have won one of the club’s much coveted trophies, stands Roy Wilson, of Norwich, who topped the result from Perth, a distance of 322 miles to his loft, on a velocity of 1248 yards a minute on a far-from-easy day which saw one of the most open races for many years.

NRCC Berwick 2014 By George Wheatman

Darren Kingswood, and partners Jackie Barker and Shane Hannah were within 42 seconds of equalling a record that has stood unbroken for 32 years when they won the opening North Road Championship Club race of the season for the second successive year.The provisional result from Berwick shows only fanciers’ first timings, and that puts the Huttoft, Lincolnshire, team in the lead with a velocity of 1877 yards per minute.But what it doesn’t show is that they are likely also to take second place with their pigeon that won the race last year.
