E J Churchill Hosts the British Schools and Young Shots Championships 2014
– Recognising future stars in clay shooting –
Following a spectacular week of shooting at the World English Sporting Championships, E J Churchill Shooting Ground played host to another hot ticket in the clay shooting calendar on Saturday 10th May – The British Schools and Young Shots Championships, run in partnership with Clay Shooting Magazine.
Rob Fenwick, Managing Director of E J Churchill says on the event “It’s great to recognise the young talent in our sport and we are committed to nurturing this talent. Amber Hill is a previous winner of this title and look where she is today – BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year, on the road to Rio and her first Olympic Games!”
“From welcoming those at the top of their game last more week at the World Championships, it’s very exciting to see the incredible level of skill shown by these up and coming young shots and we are sure we will see them on the world stage in the future.”
E J Churchill saw more than 350 competitors from all corners of the UK take to the courses. The courses were all set up for varying levels of skill including one for novices, enabling those new to the sport to experience clay shooting in a competitive environment.
In a nail-biting finale Alex Wilkinson took this year’s high gun title with a score of 43/50 closely followed by Henry Young and Henry Collins in 2nd and 3rd place respectively. Kingham Hill School were team champions and Norwich took the Old Pupils title.
