Wordsworth winner.jpgTHE Harrington Central loft of Neil and Geoff Wordsworth have set-off the 2017 season at a blistering pace with three winners in the first four races.

The father-and-son team have picked-up 14 tickets in the Central club and on Saturday topped the West Cumbria Amalgamation and the Derwent Valley Federation.

One of the most consistent lofts in the area, the Wordsworth’s latest winner is a gift bird from their good friend Tony Carraghan of Carlisle.

A yearling blue cock flying widowhood scored three times as a young bird, including a second ticket, and was their first bird home in a very fast race from Stafford.

Liberated at 10-15am he was clocked at 12-18 after a rapid near-138 miles fly from the Midlands race-point. The loft sent 35 and got all but one as returns throughout the Amalgamation were very good.
