ABT Home International
The 42nd Home International ABT headed to the Somerset Levels and Brook Bank Shooting Ground near Cheddar.
England fielded a raft of new caps for the event, which included Graham Andrews, Taylor Richards, Jack Culliford, Matthew Panter, Marvin Houghton, Philip Sanders, Robert Agar, Christian Clark, Marcus Iddon and Abbey Ling.
Brook Bank is the home of Trap shooting in the south-west, and owner Wesley Hann was a member of the England team, so it was no surprise that the targets were spot on, even if the sun did cause a few issues in the early morning rounds on Saturday.
It didn’t seem to unduly affect the scores, though, with Mark Shaw taking the individual High Gun with 193 ex 200; the England Senior team followed his lead and took the win over Scotland by a comfortable 59 points.
Ireland won the Juniors with England taking the runner-up spot, while the host nation also triumphed in Ladies and Vets. Scotland’s Super Vets proved to be the class of the field, though, relegating England to second place by just two targets.
