Cadet Clay Championships 2024

Two teams of Gresham’s cadets travelled to Cambridge Gun Club on both Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th June for the National Cadet Clay Target Shooting Championships.

The Senior Team of Edgar A, Will N, Jack K and Joe G achieved Silver medals in both the ‘Down the Line’ and ‘Sporting’ competitions, missing the Gold by just one point. Will N was awarded an individual Silver medal for his ‘Down the Line’ score and Edgar A was the top shot of CCF competitors in the ‘Sporting’ and therefore represented the CCF in the prestigious inter-services national final where he achieved another Silver medal.

The Junior Team of Sam W, Toby W, Alec A & Max C took Gold in the Flurry Competition with an astonishing score of 79 points, a full 10 points ahead of their nearest rivals and a feat that was given special mention in the prizegiving ceremony. They also achieved Bronze in the ‘Sporting’ competition. Max C was awarded an individual Bronze medal, being ranked as the 3rd best CCF shot out of all the competitors present.

This was another outstanding performance at national sporting level for the clay target shooters.
