Faulds flies at West­field

Sporting Shooter - - Clay News -

The first Eng­land Sport­ing Team se­lec­tion shoot of 2017 was held at West­field Shoot­ing Ground, where 353 com­peti­tors took to what would prove to be a very chal­leng­ing course set over 14 stands.

For­tu­nately the weather was dry and bright for the ma­jor­ity of the two days, but the scores re­mained low none­the­less, with just 14 shoot­ers man­ag­ing to break the 90 mark.

Top of the pile was Richard Faulds, who blitzed the course to fin­ish on a 97, four tar­gets clear of joint run­ners-up Scott Bar­nett, Martin Doughty and Martin My­ers.

Ladies went to Emma Stacey with an 82, while C Soanes took Colts on 67 along­side T Wood­cock. J Ben­nion and F White­hurst fin­ished joint first in Ju­niors, with A Thomp­son col­lect­ing the win in Vets with an 87.

Faulds de­clared af­ter the event that he would be hop­ing to rep­re­sent Eng­land again for the first time in sev­eral years, and his vic­tory was part of an im­pres­sive week­end of achieve­ment fol­low­ing his win on 99 ex 100 at Atkin, Grant & Lang on the Fri­day, his 97 at West­field on the Satur­day, and a 98 at Podi­more on the Sun­day.
