Premier League 2016
Well that's it for another year and what a fantastic Premier League series it was sponsored by Sunglasses for Sport, Promatic & Gamebore culminating in a rather wet but nevertheless thoroughly enjoyable shoot at Owls Lodge Shooting School on Saturday with Richard King shooting a superb 96 ex 100 to take the £250 High Gun prize.
The top 3 shooters by handicap going into the final leg all brought their A game and in the end the positions stayed exactly the same with Colt Charlie Soanes winning the Overall Series High Gun and taking home the £750 cash, Pilla Outlaw x7 Boost Shooting Glasses and 500 Gamebore Whitegold Cartridges. Huge congratulations to Charlie, Matt Peddle as Runner Up and Mark Hurrell in Overall Third Place.
Team Churchill were the highest scoring team at the final shoot but it wasn't enough to alter the best 5 scores from the series so many congratulations to Team Barrow Heath as overall Premier League champions.
