English Open English Sporting 2019 - Day 2


After another day of great weather, albeit slightly warmer and sunnier than yesterday, the second day of the 2019 English Open English Sporting has come to a close.

 Early in the day, James Bradley-Day shot an excellent course but dropped 4 targets on the notorious stand 15 to end up tied for first with Chris Childerhouse and Ben Husthwaithe at 111 ex 120.

The clubhouse was abuzz with the news in the mid-afternoon that defending champion Richard Bunning (and CPSA Clay Shooter of the Year 2019) moved to the lead with a suburb 112 ex 120.

However, it was not to last, and as Bunning himself predicted, he was pipped for the lead by Sam Green on a superlative 113 ex 120. 

The top six shooters will all be invited to a super-final on Sunday, so all of these shooters could stand to get an invite and still come out as Champion. 

Amy Easeman & Jane Maloney are leading Ladies, James Bradley-Day leads Juniors, and Tristan Hockey leads Colts. Disabled Standing is led by Sam Nunn, Disabled Sitting is led by Paul Bailey, side by side is led by Mark Ingate, Parent & Child is led by Amy and Phil Easeman, while Robert Gray leads Vets. 

Tom Jones and his team at West Midlands Shooting Ground, have continued to run a seamless event, a testament to the professionalism and experience of his team. 

The event is made possible thanks to the generous support of sponsors Rizzini (distributed in the UK by ASI), Eley Hawk, who have provided a gun and cartridges respectively as prizes for winners, and Promatic Traps, who are supporting with trap engineers to keep everything running smoothly.
