Four Way Match 2015

The annual Four Way Match Working Test was hosted by NEFRA on 26th April 2015 on ground near Garstang with the very kind permission of Frances Fitzherbert-Brockholes.

Our members competed with teams of six dogs from each of the following clubs: Pennine Training Area (Northern Golden Retriever Association), Pilling Moss Gundog Club and the Burns & Becks Gundog Club.

The tests were set by Garry Ellison and judged by him with his co-judges Neil Parkinson, Stewart Henderson and Steve Burns.  Each judge watched as two puppies, two novice dogs and two open dogs competed from each of the four teams.

This year it was Pilling Moss who took the crown, with a novice dog from Burns & Becks winning the Top Dog title.

Our own Keith Aldred with his dog Donascimento Santos was placed a very respectable 2nd place in the Novice dogs.
