DTL – 17th March 2019– Cambridge GC

Hi folks, well we are off again with a very busy weekend and today the 17th March it’s the very much looked forward to Cambridgeshire DTL Championship.

Well the day started as it meant to carry on with changing light and very blustery winds, but that didn’t stop Matt Sheldrake and last year’s Champion going at it hammer and tongs again, but this year we had a reversal of last year’s results when Paul came out on top as County Champion and Matt was Senior Champ.  This year Matt shot 98/288 enough to take the title for 2019 with Paul finishing with 98/286 and the Senior title.  This was very good shooting in this weather and I guess at any time, and with 46 entries this year it was not a push over by any means.

So we have our Champ Matt Sheldrake 98/288

Senior Paul Ward  98/ 286

Ladies Amelia Smith 86/248.

Vets Richard Croft   95/ 262

Colts Samuel Halls   96/256

AA   Richard Morris   88/253

A     Steve Eley         94/278

B     Corbie Barnard     97 /284 (well shot Corbie)

C     Marcus Lord      92/275

Well shot folks in very hard trying conditions, and many thanks to Cambridge GC for their hospitality. For full set of scores on the national CPSA website see here.

Universal Trench – 16th March – Nuthampstead

Another very testing 100 targets on a very windy day.  So windy in fact that I had a job to get the door open on my car, but that didn’t worry the shooters from Herts/ Essex / and Cambridgeshire.  At the end of the day our top shot and county Champion was Graham Carter with an 86.  That was one better than Paul Ward and Peter Waller both having put in 85’s and awaiting a shoot off to find out who was to be Champ.  However, this was not to be after Grahams 85, but they still had a shoot off to decide the Vets title.  Peter Waller came out on top by 1 target so takes home the Vets Shield.


Champion Graham Carter

Seniors Champion Ashley Smith who seems to be a trophy magnet this year.

Ladies Champion Sarah Christensen.

Vets Champion Peter Waller

Well done folks and many thanks to Nuthampstead for your hospitality

Cambs All Round 10th March 2019 Cambridge GC

This was another windy and wet affair but it didn’t stop the Cambridgeshire faithful from turning up to have a go at some very testing targets.  At the end of the day our 2018 county DTL Champion made it look easy posting an 85, very good in the conditions of the day, but it went right to the wire with Darren Stanford coming in with an 82. The Vets was very tight with 2 shooters on 80 Richard Croft and Peter Simpson count back had to be used as both shooters had left the ground so Richard Croft came out on top, for the second year in a row.

Cambs Skeet Eriswell Lodge 3rd March 2019

Well folks the first of our County Championships took part this weekend the 3rd of March. Well it could have been a better day weatherwise and after the last few weeks it was a big let down, but nevertheless it was a good turn out at Eriswell SG for our English Skeet Championship. Some very good shooting took place and as it worked out the early morning squads were the winners with the weather; they got a bit wet but missed the big winds. For full report and scores see here
