Winter Leagues Fully Underway

English Skeet, Round One

The first round of the Utopia Hair Salon Winter Series English Skeet League was held at Meary Veg, Santon, with 15 competitors taking part in very changeable conditions.

In the first round pad one and two proved very difficult with the sun directly shining into the shooters faces but junior Joe Faragher proved that wrong by scoring 24 points only missing on station six to lead from Dave Corlett on 23 in second place with Will Rand, John Moore and B class shooter George Davies in equal third place on 22. We had two new shooters making their league debut in Roman Sammer and Mark Hepworth who both shot 18 in their first round. The leading C class shooter was Chris Workman on 20.

After a short break the second round got underway but this time the shooters had a very strong wind to content with making the targets very unpredictable but at the end of the round we had the following results. In C Class Rob Marshall and Chris Workman were the winners on 39 points with Barry Jones taking third place on 33. George Davies was the lone shooter in B class on 41. In A Class Paul Mihailovits was in third place on 43 with Paul managing to hit a straight in his second round, in second place on 44 was Will Rand but taking first place and overall high gun was junior Joe Faragher – done Joe.
