The Kennel Club have published advice on 15th August 2020 in respect of holding events, including Field Trials.  The information is available in full here on the Kennel Club website.

In line with Kennel Club advice, the Club has decided to use the Field Trial Management System (FTMS) for entries for trials.  The use of this system will eliminate the requirement for paper entries and cheques as advised by the Kennel Club.

The FTMS system is easy to use and, due to the current circumstances, is being made available FREE for this year (normal user fee is £12).   Please use this link to access the FTMS.

The Club is planning to hold four trials for the 2020/21 season.  See Schedule below.

  • One Novice A/V Field Trial
  • Open Qualifying Field Trial (AV except Cockers)
  • Novice Cocker Field Trial
  • Open Qualifying Cocker Field Trial


MSWSC field trial schedule 2020 V5

A paper entry form is available below but should only be used in exceptional circumstances and with prior discussion with the Club’s Field Trial Secretary.
