I recieved a copy of this report below from Darren Oakley regarding the Derbyshire North Road Federations race from Berwick last week.
After the top result of Barry Pearce winning 1st N.R.C.C. Fraserburgh last week with his bird being down from the late Dean Skuse, it was quite remarkable that the top eight positions in the Berwick Derbyshire North Road Fed race for three different fanciers also contained our bloodlines through Dean. This must also be very pleasing for Derek Nuttall because not only was he Deans partner for very many years as Skuse and Nuttall but they were also great friends. Dean was a top fancier and a brilliant stock man , evidence of which can still be seen in these results. Many thanks for the information Darren.
