Day Four Report

Saturday was the final day of qualification for the British Open English Sporting and the conclusion of the British Open Sportrap at West Midlands Shooting Ground.

With the weather once again holding out, conditions remained calm, with spells of warm sunshine and very little wind.

It took until the very last squad of the day for the second 115 of qualification to be recorded. Steve Clark matched George Digweed’s effort from Wednesday, to ease his way through to the finals day tomorrow. Brett Winstanley shooting in the same squad shot 113 to also confirm his place for tomorrow.

Sportrap Conculsion

Tim Webster took full advantage of shooting in one of the last squads in the Sportrap competition to claim the title.

Matt Hance had momentarily joined Richard Faulds as clubhouse leader after shooting an impressive 94 ex 100 on Saturday morning. However, Tim took to the course less than an hour later and shot 24, 23, 24, 24 across the four layouts to finish on 95 ex 100.

Few came closer to challenging Tim than Steve Brightwell did, but his effort of 93 fell short of the mark.

With Richard Faulds not in attendance for the shoot off to determine the runner up, Matt Hance finished second through default.

Following his victory Tim said, "It's the first time I've won this (the British Open Sportrap), I won it a couple of times as junior. I'm really happy to win it and hopefully I'll be able to repeat it in the future."

Martin Myers, Billy Baughan, Steve Brightwell and Andy Calvert had to shoot off to determine the winner and placings of AAA class. Martin emerged victorious shooting 23, to pip Billy by one target to take the class title. Steve then edged out Andy in a further shoot off to take third in class.

Speaking earlier in the day after his round of 93 on the Sportrap, Andy said, “I shot a 93 which was a good effort when your shooting against the likes of George (Digewed) on a 92 and Ed (Solomons). It was a cracking course again by Tom and the team, really good targets, it gets better here every year.”

Following her score of 86 yesterday, Hannah Gibson returned to face Becky McKenzie in a shoot off for the Ladies title.

The pair took on one Sportrap layout consisting of 25 targets and after establishing a two shot lead through the first 10 targets, Hannah held her nerve to go one better than her runner up finish last year.

Hannah was clearly delighted to take the title and the Sussex shot will be in action tomorrow at 9.54am in the finals day.
