ABT Home In­ter­na­tional

Sporting Shooter - - Clay News -

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.
