The fifteenth annual Woodbridge School CCF Suffolk Cadet Target Rifle competition was held at Middlewick ranges Colchester recently. The aim of the day is to prepare teams for the forthcoming National Rifle Association competition at Bisley, introduce new shooters to the sport and compete for the Suffolk Challenge shield and this year’s competition featured teams from Suffolk, Essex and Cambridge ACFs and Woodbridge School CCF.
The Woodbridge eight of Oliver Hood, Will Woods Ballard, Isaac Young, Miles Budden, Rick Tong, Sami Shubbar, Wesley Howseman and Dylan Howseman came 1st with a very impressive score of 441 & 23 V Bulls, ahead of second placed Essex ACF with a score of 390 & 11 V Bulls. Woodbridge reserve team of Matt Strudwick, James Martin, Chris Long, George King, Alfie Davis, Olly Buchanan, and two reserves from Essex ACF, came a fantastic 3rd with a score of 345 and 6 V Bulls.
Our team also took the top six places in the individual competition with Wesley Howseman coming 1st out of 44 cadets. This was a very good result and will make picking the team for Bisley this year all the more difficult.
