Huddersfield Town vs Liverpool

Manager's outing to Huddersfield vs Liverpool

Our Managers took a visit to The John Smith's Stadium last week to see Huddersfield Town's pre-season clash with Liverpool for the "Shankly Trophy". Liverpool missed a first-half spot kick, but Huddersfield Town had their chances against the Premier League side, and showed signs of promise. A first half strike from Marko Grujic was added to by Alberto Moreno's late penalty as Liverpool clinched the win at 0-2. 

Here at Woodcock and Wilson our vibrant team members have some truly fascinating hobbies. 
Our Works Manager, Simon Lockwood is an old English Bantam enthusiast and is the proud owner of over 200 birds. While he was first introduced to old English bantams by a neighbour in 1977, his interest in poultry was rekindled four years ago and since then he has been collecting Bantams with a vengeance. With 15 acknowledged colours or classes of bantam, these “pure” breed birds are highly sought after and can be bred together in order to produce some intriguing colour combinations. 

In the last few years Simon has gone on to win a number of prestigious prizes for his championship winning birds. Most notably however was his success as the Carlisle Game show. With around 1500 entries from across England, Scotland and Wales, the show is one of the biggest of its kind. Despite competing against 76 birds, two of Simon’s black hens managed to achieve 3rd and 4th position in their class. Given Simon’s recent success, it will be interesting to see how his stock performs in the upcoming autumn shows.
