Prize-giving at sheep dog trials

The International Sheep Dog Trials were held at the Longman, Inverness between 18 and 20 September 1952. The trials were held annually by the International Sheep Dog Society for competitors from Scotland, England and Wales. This was the first time that they had come to the Highlands.

The prizes were presented on this occasion by Mrs Kay Grigor, wife of Provost J.M. Grigor.

Scotland carried off most of the honours on the first day. The Challenge Cup for the shepherds' championship was won by Mr George Redpath of Jedburgh with his dog Moss. The Second Mostyn Championship Shield for the brace championship was won by Mr William Work of Hawick with his dogs Ken and Dave.

In the supreme singles championship held over the following two days the first and second places were won by two Welsh farmers. Scots took the next four places. The only north competitor, Mr J. McKerchar, Inverness, had a bad run on the Friday and did not qualify for the finals on the Saturday. The team championship was won by Scotland
