kevin trio.pngWorkington fancier Kevin Evans was celebrating after the latest race from Cheltenham.

Kevin, who flies as Evans and Abraham, topped the Cumbria Combine for the third time as he won the Workington Victoria club, the Derwent Valley Federation and the West Cumbria Amalgamtion.

Over a number of years Kevin has built a reputation for being a successful and highly motivated fancier as results have shown.

The latest winner is a two-year-old chequer hen flying on the roundabout systemwhich has always been very consistent.

She is a Lambrecht, bred from birds of Steve Foster from Leyland and the late Charlie Mellors from Fleetwood.

The birds were liberated at 10-30am in a light south west wind and the winner  was clocked at 1-57 after a 198-miles fly.

Kevin said: "I'd just like to say a big thank-you to Brian Carlton and Jimmy Dixon who have given me so much help."

Kevin sent 26 to the race and got 23 back, all bar one going to this week-end's race.
