Cockerel takes up residence at cricket club

More news, no ads


The white cockerel, who has prominent black tail feathers, committed some serious foul play as he swooped in during the Berkshire vs Cornwall cricket match at the adjoining Falkland Cricket Club on Sunday afternoon – and he hasn’t left the place since.
Manager Summer Lancaster said: “He is a beautiful looking thing but he is becoming something of a nuisance now.
“The customers are all having a joke about it and although he isn’t really causing any trouble, we are desperately trying to trace his owner and hand him back.
“He just appeared during the match and was very lucky not to be killed when one of the players hit a six which only just missed him.
“He is still here, walking around and crowing like he owns the place and we have no idea when he is planning to leave.”
And she joked: “He is quite protective over his decking so I think he might be after the lease or something.”
Their efforts to rehome their newest resident have so far proved to be in vain.
They have already been in touch with a local farm, who insist the cockerel does not belong to them. They have also tried contacting the RSPCA, but have so far had no reply.
Ms Lancaster added: “We just can’t seem to get rid of him. We have absolutely no idea where he has come from.
“He is not agressive, but our cleaner isn’t particularly keen on chickens, so we really need to find out who owns him and get him back to where he belongs.”
Anyone who recognises the cockerel should contact the The Bowler’s Arms directly on 01635 47658.
