We wish to thank Jiannis Seiradakis for help and encouragement during the survey observations, and Oleg Doroshenko for assistance with the timing observations. The constant support of the skilled and dedicated operators at Effelsberg viz: Herrn. Koch, Marschner, Seidel, Georgi, Schlich and Bartel was instrumental in our quest to finally find pulsars with the Effelsberg radio telescope. DRL would also like to thank Chris Salter for useful comments on an earlier version of the manuscript, and Bryan Gaensler for helpful discussions.
