Cadets on target for national selection

Gresham’s pupils, Harry Ardern (H), Will Cubitt (H) and Ben Danzinger (W) have been selected to join the UK Cadet Rifle Team for a ten day tour of the Channel Islands in August 2017.

The trio, having already been selected to the squad of 18 in February, made the final touring team of 12 after an intensive weekend of shooting and classroom work at Bisley during their Easter break.

Harry, Will and Ben performed very well, both on the range and behind the firing point with good administration and record keeping.  Ben was top shot on day one and Will Cubitt took the top shot slot on day two.  Harry went on to top score in the team competition on the final day.

The trio will go on to tour the Channel Islands in August and will compete in the Jersey Championships.
