The weekend before last was the white gold cup, that always draws a big crowed and some brilliant targets. The round was as expected, great targets, put all shooters through there paces and very enjoyable. After having such a successful year with the students at the academy, with wins in nearly all the major competitions throughout the year, Taylor and Aaron qualifying for the England team and taking 1st and 2nd place in the juniors at the British Open we really couldn’t ask for more.
But young George Townsend and Taylor Hedgecock really did put everything they had into the white gold and the results reflected this. Taylor shot the round and put in a fantastic and well deserved 133/150 securing him 1st place in the Juniors category and another title under his belt. This is Taylor’s first season in Juniors and he is already dominating, so next year should be exciting!!!!!
Young George Townsend who has also had a very good year with taking 1st in colts at the Classic and winning nearly all the Norfolk juniors titles. George is in the colts category as he is only 15 years old. George shot round the white gold keeping focused throughout and taking each clay as they came. By the end of the round George had managed to put in a HUGE score of 135/150!!! taking 1st in Colts by a long way and finishing the year on a real high.
We would like to say congratulations to Taylor and George on winning there categories at the White Gold and also thank you to all of the students who train at the Philip Thorrold Shooting Academy for there hard work and 100% dedication!!!!
These results that we as an academy have achieved this year really do demonstrate that with the correct training and coaching along with continuous hard work and dedication from the shooters, results like these can be accomplished!!!!
