Statement on a proposed ban on lead shot.

The board of the Welsh Clay Target Shooting Association have discussed and reviewd the suggested and possible ban on the inclusion of lead within shotgun cartridges and after careful consideration are unanimously and strongly opposed to any such ban.

They consider any such ban as without scientific basis, and believe any such ban will do untold damage to the sport of clay target shooting. Several of the clay shooting disciplines, particularly the international disciplines, would not be practical without lead inclusion in shot and would therefore be lost. Clay Target shooting is  a sport which generates significant income for many businesses and communities, encourages participation in outdoor sport and through international competitions encourage good international relations.

Ian Jones, director WCTSA.

Congratulations to Ellis Jones on Winning the Dougal Tropy with a perfect scre of 100/300

On Sunday 28th May in the English Open Skeet  Luke had put in a 97 equal with two other English Juniors . The shoot off took place between Luke and Callum Jones one of the English Juniors. Both shoot a 23 which resulted in a shoot off on pairs. The final score was 6-4 with Luke winning the English Open Junior title.This was the first time that a Welsh Junior has won the English Open Skeet Junior title which is a fabulous achievement as the final part of the shoot off was shot in torrential rain. It was a credit to watch both Luke and Callum shoot with discipline. Well Done.

Ben Llewellin Wins Silver at the ISSF World Cup

 

the ISSF World Cup Final in New Delhi.

 

The young Skeet shooter from Wales performed phenomenally against the best Skeet shooters in the world to secure second spot after missing just one target out of 60.

 

However, the Gold medal went to Italy’s Riccardo Filippelli, who pipped the Welsh shooter to first place in a sudden death shoot-off.

 

It was an enthralling final in which all six shooters took each round really close, but Llewellin kept his cool under pressure and looked extremely composed throughout.

 

Speaking after the shoot-off, Ben said, "It feels great to win Silver, to be on that podium is what us athletes live for and to do it on the world stage at the World Cup Final feels amazing."

 

"To be a World Record holder feels a little surreal at the moment. But now my name is there in the record books and it feels awesome. It’s something I will be proud of for a long time!"

 

He added, ""Having battled it out with the best in the word I've now got huge confidence moving forward, but I was also full of confidence during the final, I didn’t feel like I could miss! To have it go down to the wire like with such massive scores is crazy so to be a part of that is huge experience."

 

It was only a few weeks ago that Llewellin won Gold at the British Shooting Grand Final, and the medal in New Delhi is a fantastic way to round off his season.

Looks like Ben won Gold in the CSF Australia… again equalling his world record of 59 ex 60 in the final

Jack Fairclough secured Silver in the Men’s Skeet during the second day of the Commonwealth Shooting Federation Championships in Australia.

 

Having shot a perfect 50 in the first two rounds of qualification on Monday, Jack continued in fine form, beating Australian Paul Adams in a shoot-off to progress to the final in first place.

 

However, Jack was no match for Welshman Ben Llewellin in the final. Ben has been shooting to a superb standard lately and followed up his joint World Record of 59 ex 60 last week at the ISSF World Cup in New Delhi, by equalling it once again. Jack shot well, but had to settle for Silver, with Paul Adams taking Bronze.
