33 Teams competed in the annual Lancashire and Cumbrian Team clay shoot with the top prize going to Calvert Sporting.
The day started overcast but it didn't take long for the cloud to burn off and the sun to appear. Teams travelled from as far south as Staffordshire and from North Northumberland to partake in this fun 4 man team shoot.
Lancashire chairman Don Crutchfield had this to say about the event "Each year this clay shoot gets bigger and bigger which is exactly what we hoped for, we had 33 teams compete with some fantastic sportsmanship and shooting from all of the teams. A big thanks must go out to all of our helpers of the day, without their help this shoot would not be possible, also we have been sponsored by local businesses which covered the costs to put on this shoot which has been excellent.
Peter Jagger, Lancashire chairman went on to Thank Jonty Wightman and his team who again put on a fantastic day with some brilliant targets.
The winning team Calvert Sporting posted a fantastic score of 345 dropping only 5 clays, closely followed by The Checkley Shoot Team posting a score of 341.
