Seaford College Schools Challenge clay shoot 2016 U16Seaford College Schools Challenge clay shoot 2016 U19Last Wednesday, Seaford College pupils participated in the Oxford Gun Company Schools Challenge clay pigeon competition. The teams of five seniors (U19) and five juniors (U15) had an early start, leaving at 6.45am to get to the range in Buckinghamshire for a 9.30am briefing, before shooting the same course of 50 sporting clays over eight stands.

“It was very cold and windy, which made the targets erratic and unpredictable,” said Tony Bracci, Seaford’s head shooting instructor.

At the end of the day the teams all gathered in the club house to hear the results. Seaford’s U15 team won their section, earning them a prize of a new clay trap and clays for the school, goody bags and 250 cartridges each. With an outstanding score of 47/50, Monty Dix came second in the individual rankings. “All the boys were well behaved and were a credit to their school,” added Mr Bracci.

If you are interested in clay shooting at Seaford College, our clay range operates each Saturday during term time between 10am – 5pm with open practice sessions as part of our Shooting Academy 10am -12pm.
