The Sixth and final round of the IoM Rifle Associations Jamaica Trophy goes Potter’s way

            Run concurrently with the Osborn Carpets match, the sixth and final round of the Isle of Man Rifle Associations Jamaica Trophy was claimed by Andy Potter with 591 x 600, taking the class A in the process. Class B was won by Mike Clague and Class C by Andy Traynor. I will give a full list of the 2014 Jamaica Trophy results in the near future.

 

Thomas Clague is top shot in the Sadler Junior Championship round thirteen

            Thomas Clague gave an excellent display on Monday evening in the Sadler Junior Championship when he posted a score eight points ahead of his main adversary, Illiam Christian. Full results were:-

1 – Thomas Clague     97, 94, 99 = 290 x 300

2 – Illiam Christian     94, 94, 94 = 282

3 – Alex Trafford         91, 96, 91 = 278

 

            Bill Jones has forwarded the results for rounds five and six of the Ulster Counties summer Leagues and they will be in this column in the near future as I am very conscious of column space in the sports section due to the Commonwealth Games reports over the next couple of weeks.
