Team of the week.  

Has to go to Arddleen for their 207.3

Match of the week

Difficult, but Castle v Llanfair edges it for being a close match, with only one scoring shooter making the difference, and a fantastic head to head shoot-out between Richard Morgan and Dai Tom Williams.

Shooter of the week

Several 35 scorers in contention, also Steve Forrester for his string of 5.1’s spoilt by that horrible miss shot. However, it’s a senior shooter, captain John Davies (Arddleen) for his 35.2 showing the young guns how it’s done!

On Thursday, the Upper individual KO takes place at the Royal Oak in Welshpool at 8pm. Anyone wishing to see what Bell Target shooting is all about is invited to come along and watch the league’s top shooters battle it out head to head.
