Andy Potter – a loss to the Island shooting scene

            Isle of Man Shooting Club and IoMSC Douglas member, Andy Potter leaves the Island at the end of the month with his partner Jayde Lambert, to relocate in Melbourne, Australia. Andy has been a mainstay of both the above clubs, introducing new members, acting on both club’s committees and representing the IoMSC at Association level, was until recently competition secretary for the Isle of Man Shooting Club and has represented the Island at the 2015 Island Games in Jersey gaining a gold and a silver medal.

On behalf of both clubs, I would like to wish Andy and Jayde every success in their endeavours on the other side of the world; you will both be sadly missed. Take care and good luck to you both but just remember to keep in touch with us all.
