Cross wears All-Round Crown

Manx All-Round Championship

The IOM clay Pigeon Shooting Club hosted the IOM All Round Championship kindly sponsored by Sadler Agricultural Supplies

The championship consisted of four disciplines SB DTL, ABT, English Skeet and Sporting and shot in that order.

The leader after the SBDTL was John Moore with 24 points closely followed by Michael Cross and junior Arran Wade on 22 with Alan Kinrade, Mark Barnett, Rob Corlett and Jack Clague on 21.

The next discipline was ABT and John Moore was still in the lead on 45 points with Michael Cross and Arran Wade in equal second place on 44 and followed by Alan Kinrade on 41 with Mark Riley now in fourth place on 40.

English skeet was next and Cross showed his class hitting all 25 targets to take the lead on 69 points with Moore now in second place on 66 followed by Kinrade in third place on 65, Mark Riley was forth on 63 with Arran Wade in fifth place on 62.

The final discipline was sporting shot over a very testing course of four stands. With the first four getting prizes we had to have a shoot off for third and forth place between Mark Riley and Arran Wade over a round of SBDTL. The result of the shoot off was  Riley claimed third place with 20 points to Wade’s 19, who got fourth place. The runner up in the Championship went to Alan Kinrade with 82 points but taking the Championship with 84 points was Michael Cross, well done Michael!
