Kirk Michael take the Division 1 points from IoMSC Douglas in fine style

            The nine man team of Kirk Michael claimed the 2 points from a reasonably high scoring visiting IoMSC Douglas team on Monday evening. The villagers secured the win by a single, but invaluable point. Top scores for the hosts went to Kevin Quinn, Tom Lord and Perryn Callister all posting 99’s with junior Illiam Christian hitting 98 and another junior, James Rosengrove completing the Division 1 team on 95. For the visitors, Martin Burns matched the oppositions 99’s with A N Other and Lorrie Thompson both hitting 98. Consolation wins in Divisions 2 and 3 did go Douglas’ way. Ironically, IoMSC Douglas’ score of 489, would have beaten every other match shot in the league this week – well done to the Rifle Associations enthusiastic minnows on this occasion.

Sandsiders try hard against a strong Laxey team

            IoMSC Sandsiders hosted Laxey Rifle Club at Sinclair and unfortunately lost all three Divisions. Bill Jones continues to push Harry Creevy in the Individual League listings and this week was no exception, posting yet another 99 and leading the Sandsiders team. Three 97’s from Andy Traynor, Richard Arthur and Terry Green followed Jones. For the visiting team, Nick Kennish produced an excellent 99 with Harry Creevy and Andy Jessopp close behind on 98.
