Remember an old boy in the late 70s from the parkgate /rawmarsh area of Rotherham who had whippets called Jack that used to tell us tales of the rabbit matches wonder if its the same fella as a young'un in the pic.

 

Same oldboy used to tell me their was never a shortage of rabbits for these matches pre mixy days and their was a few teams of peggers in that area who could always get enough live rabbits.

The lad with Sally is still a mate of mine, I'll be seeing him on saturday at his stables. He is still into the dogs, he's got a wee Beddy/Whippet now. I can't believe it was almost 40year ago I was running dogs at the Rising Sun !

 

Cheers.

Had a look in at the Rising sun not so long ago, good to see the people and place still going
