30/09/2013 - Each and every nation where the sport of pigeon racing is practised has its own group of elite fanciers who achieve a high level of success year in and year out. There are many fanciers who flirt with success for a few seasons but very few have the ability to create a family of pigeons that go on winning generation after generation. The partnership of Anna Crowley and Richard Green of Compton Bassett in Wiltshire can proudly lay claim to achieving this. The results they have achieved with their team of pigeons are simply incredible!
