Junior shooters fare well at Meary Veg
George Davies was the winner of the first round of the Cu Plas Callow winter sporting league at Meary Veg in Santon yesterday (Sunday).
21 shooters took part as Davies also won the Victor Annand Cup.
He finished with 41 out of 50 in A class. Jack Clague was second on 37 with Juan Cowley in third, a further point behind.
Colt shooter Michael Cross was the star in B class. He finished on 37, equal second high gun overall, two shots ahead of Peter Fabrizio whose son Giulio was third on 33.
The C class winner was another junior, Arran Wade, who finished ahead of Roy Moore and Arthur Stepka.
The IOM Clay Pigeon Shooting Club also held its annual prize presentation at Douglas Golf Club last week.
At the beginning of the evening, a cheque for £2,300 was presented to Mary Doyle of IOM Hospice, proceeds of the club’s annual charity shoot held in July.
So far, the club has raised more than £15,000 for Hospice from its annual competitions.
Chairman Peter Kelly presented the cheque to Mary Doyle.
