2017 County Sporting Final

The 2017 County final competitions kicked of with the Sporting Final held at Arthur Williams` Mid Wales Shooting Centre. Held in glorious spring sunshine, weather that is normally reserved for the undercover trap disciplines held in the Autumn.

Teams from Anglesey, Dyfed, Gwent, Gwynedd, Mid Glamorgan, West Glamorgan and on home soil last year winning team Powys. The sporting layouts this year were all based at the lower end of the ground, avoiding the queues on stands 9 and 10 that had happened over the last couple of years. Stands 9 and 10 were new stands to the County competition. As usual at this event all the targets were there to be hit by the 106 competitors.

With the sun came its problems on certain stands with stand 6 in particular being affected with the right to left second target coming out of the sun.

Would Powys retain the team trophy for another 3rd year or would another county triumph? Early scores in were setting the bar at a high level with a 93 and a 92 from Dyfed`s Alan Davies and Paul Heywood respectively.

There were 4 teams of colts and 1 junior team. Powys colt Annalise Evans, who frequently vies with the senior ladies with her scores , was on fine form again with consistent high scores over the stands, Anglesey’s Ferdy Norlander was keeping pace with Annalise. In the junior class Calum Croft was also showing his pedigree with high scores on most of the stands, stand 3 the right to left battue with the on report left right midi was not to his liking with his lowest score recorded on this stand.

As the day progressed a wind picked up to move some of the targets, stand 7 simultaneous pair of dropping ducks were now moving differently from the start of the competition.

Mid Glamorgan’s Rowena Guiney at her first County final was scoring consistently at the top end of her score card, Claire Lewis another new cap also from Mid Glamorgan was keeping in touch with Rowena with both ladies suffering on stand 8.

The popularity and strength of the Sporting discipline in West Wales was coming to fruition with Dyfed`s Veterans and Super Veterans featuring at the top end of the score board. Lloyd Morris Veteran and Ronald Morgan Super Veteran leading the way in their respective classes.

Alan and Paul’s 93 was joined by Richard Hughes of Powys for a three way shoot off. Prior to the senior shoot off Annalise and Ferdy also needed a shoot off to decide the destination of the Colts trophy, with Annalise shooting first on a very difficult stand, gave Ferdy a target to beat which he did by one, on his very last pair. Richard Hughes was the victor in the seniors with a score of 7 on the shoot off stand.

As the county scores were compiled and Dyfed `s score was 26 ahead of 2nd place Gwent.

Inter Counties Skeet Final 2017-04-24

Another perfect day greeted the 73 skeet shooters from Dyfed, Gwent, Powys, Ynys Mon, West Glam, Clwyd and Gwynedd, for the 2nd Inter County Final of the year, at Mid Wales Shooting Centre. With cream of the Welsh Skeet scene making an appearance, most of last year’s trophy winners returning to retain last years prizes and with a sprinkling of current Internationals high scores would be the order of the day.

Clwyd`s Heath Gizzy was setting the pace in the senior category with a perfect 50 over the first 2 rounds, 1 ahead of team mate Stephen Lawrenson, and Gwent`s Anthony Cox Alan Parkin and Dyfed`s Meredith Owen .

Probably a reflection of the state of shooting in the Principality at the moment was a distinct lack of competition in the Juniors, Colts and lady shooters. However Dyfed ladies Deena Irving and Carol Francis a force to be reckoned with in any competition, were enjoying their own personal battle for County honours with a 48 and 44 respectively over the first two rounds, Gwynedd`s Geraint Matulla posted a respectable 44 over the first 50. Colts Powys` Lewis Duggan was 3 ahead of David Pryce at the half way point.

Gwent`s Super Vet Alan Parkin`s 49 x 50 was repeated over the last 50 to finish on a 98 in contention for HG now with Dyfed`s Meredith Owen posting another 98.

The Captains cup also required a shoot off to decide the winner from , Clwyd`s Heath Gizzy, Dyfed`s Paul Heywood, and Gwent`s Nigel Hodson, all on 97`s

All 5 shot off over a round of 25 with the HG contenders finishing on a 23 a piece and the Captains requiring another shoot of after 24`s were recorded. The second shoot off pairs on stand 4 went to the wire with Heath and Paul dropping the last of the pairs for Nigel Hodson to take the Captains Cup; It was the same for high gun with Alan missing the last of the second pair to leave Meredith with the County High Gun trophy for 2017.

In the County team, positions were extremely close with only a 4 point spread from 2nd to 4th with West Glam in 2nd place on 710 Clwyd on 709 and Ynys Mon on 706, repeating their Sporting teams result Dyfed seniors finished in 1st place with 747

All that was left was the presentation of the trophies after another immaculate day at Arthur’s by WCTSA Chairman Daff Davies.
