SALE FOR DAGENHAM MARKING STATION FOR THE THAMES NORTH AND EASTERN COUNTIES FLYING CLUB

With what started as a dream in 2020 a couple of East London and Essex fancier’s heads, as being in a position where people in East London and Essex could race pigeons on the south road locally soon became a reality. A marking station that started with 9 members, has grown dramatically in 1 full season meaning that the start of 2021, has seen this small acorn grow to a mighty oak of around 25 members. The membership of the marking station ranges from the Isle of Dogs as far out as the Bishop Stortford, and the membership contains many multiple London North Road Combine winners, Essex & Kent Amal winners, and even in its short period of formation UBI combine and BICC winners. However, with this huge increase it means that we have outgrown our current facilities in the Royal British Legion Beacontree club, which means that we now have to build a facility within the club grounds that can safely hold all our equipment, and also allow us to mark our pigeons away from the weather. I would like to thank the fanciers in advanced that have pledged young birds to our sale and their continuous support.
Lot 1 David Hales and Duncan Goodchild, Essex: Unbelievable way to start a sale!! This loft year on year proves how fantastic it is. In 2020 with their fantastic hen Mirfar winning 1st Bicc Open Rieux Minervois 582 miles, not to mention this lofts ever increasing track record of producing marathon pigeons for others lofts Anyone interested in serious long distance racing should not let this one go a miss proven track record that is ever increasing.

The partnership turned south recently and have continued their winning ways both on their mid-week, Saturday clubs and had a number of top 50 performances with the BICC within the last three seasons.

John & Theresa have been hugely successful on the North and south road routes, winning club, federations, combines, sections, RPRA regional awards and nationals. They have also a huge representation of producing winners in many, many other lofts. In 2015 they made the great decision to buy out Frans Zwols when he retired from the sport.

Along with John Gladwin, the other side partner in Formula 1 Lofts. John is a fantastic flyer with a lot of wins both inland and over the channel. Deadly competitor in the Thames and always one to watch, and is always high up on the result when sending in the BICC, NFC and UBI. Past winner of the BICC, and top top fancier young birds or old birds. John supports the marking station again with a 2021 young bird.
Lot 7 Anthony Webster, Wisbech: Tony Webster has been a top fancier for many years back in his days in Kent, where he made his name on the sprint scene especially with young birds. BHW scribe and Dagenham marking station member wrote about Tonys achievements in 2014 when he won East London Federation sprint championship, but since then he has moved a number of times and won many many 1st clubs and federations wherever he has gone. Within the last two season he has won 10 x 1st Federation, 24 x 1st Club, 46 cards in the first 10 of the federation on a 5 bird limit.

They have recently moved to deep Essex, and have started with young birds on the south road in 2019. Their birds have won throughout the UK with some really big performances in some of the biggest organisations. Eddy and the boys offer a young bird from their successful Van Den Bulcke family, being direct from the lofts best racing hen with a number of results. What more can you ask, you know what this partnership brings in each year only the best, and the partnership are offering a young bird from their best racer.
Lot 10 Brian & Karen Hawes, Essex: This partnership has real legendary status in the game both North in the London North Road Combine and on the South in the UBI. Their family pigeons are known worldwide, and are responsible for 1000’s of winners. This partnership is 100% dedicated to pigeons and have won from 50 miles to 500. This partnership are new members to the Dagenham marking station, and I am sure like everywhere else they have gone in the past they will make their name known to the Thames and to the marking station. The partnership kindly offers a pair of 2021 young birds.
Lot 11 John Halstead, Dorset: Probably one of the most famous pigeon fanciers in the country, not only because of his results at channel and long distance events, but also because of his very in-depth instructional pigeon videos, that I think at some point or another every pigeon fancier in the game would have seen one. Known for his great wins from Barcelona and Palamos, this top of the draw fancier has also won channel events from the shorter events too, making his title of one of his videos ‘Any distance Widowhood’ very apt. John kindly offers a 2021 young bird.
Lot 12 Carbon Lofts, George Metcm, Essex: Brand new racing stud created in 2020. Basing their lofts on National and international winning lines. Their motto uses the old Geoff Kirkland phrase that the “Apple Never Falls Far From The Tree”, and they have invested so to represent that. At stock they house direct children of national winners, with the young bird that this loft is offering is from a direct child of the famous pigeon ‘Forest Gump Junior’ 1st International Pau winner, 28th International Bordeaux and sire of 1st International Agen for SG Freialdenhofen & Sohne of Germany.
Lot 13 Steven Fenech, Essex: Exceptional record racing on the North Road with London North road combine, Essex Combine and Essex and Kent Amalgamation wins, with his team of Dennis Sapin pigeons. Now Steven has started to race on the south, and probably has the most complete collection of original Dirk Van Den bulcke pigeons in the world. This loft definitely will leave its mark racing on the south road, as they have done wherever they have raced. Steven family of birds have won globally and will only go from strength to strength, this loft kindly offers a 2021 young bird for the marking station sale.
Lot 14 John Wheatcroft: John has a name that every time you pick up the pigeon papers, you see that winner after winner has been produced from his line of pigeons. John is famous for sourcing the best from Belgium, especially his family of Leo Heremans. I believe John has produced winners in every major organisation within the UK. John offers a great opportunity to purchase a 2021 young bird to give YOU the chance to add your name to the list of winners that he has produced!
Lot 15 Davy Hunt & Sons, Hertfordshire: This record breaking partnership started back up again for young birds in 2020. The partnership has legendary status wherever they have raced, and have broken records in every club, federation and organisation they have ever been in. Their comeback season was like they have never been away, winning multiple 1st prizes yet again at all levels. This partnership has been top of the tree for many, many years, and it’s exciting to see Davy back in the sport. Davy has donated a 2021 young bird to the sale, this is a partnership that leaves no stone unturned a phenomenal offer not to be missed.
Lot 16 John Chipperfield, Kent: 2019’s King of Barcalona, unbelievable performance winning the race into the UK by some margin. John was a top sprint flyer on the North Road when racing in the heart of east London, and when moving to kent, he has set his sights on long distance racing, and is really making the UK stand up and look with 5x1st Open BICC under his belt, and believe me it will not stop there. John kindly donates a young bird.
Lot 18 Lenny Jenkins, Essex: Lenny has won wherever he has raced from, the last few seasons he has been silent partner with the very successful fancier Tony Calverly of Dagenham. The partnership clicked and saw the partnership win 1st Open LNRC Berwick but also 2 x Tommy Long trophy, which is highly sought after prize in the London area. Lenny is building a family of sticker donckers combined with birds supplemented from Ian Stafford. Lenny has kindly offered a pair of babies for the sale.
Lot 19 Dale Bagge, Essex: Dale has been back in the sport for only a short time, but in that time he has won club and federation on the north road. His family of sticker donckers have been winning for other fanciers too with Lenny Jenkins doing well with the birds that Dale has bred too. Dale is offering a pair of young birds from his direct Sticker Doncker pigeons of the old lines. If sprinters are what you are looking for look no further.
