Shooting Match v School January 2017 | Mon 16th Jan 2017
For the fifth year running this resulted in a win for OS, 509 : 501, but the margin was much closer than on many occasions. Last year’s shooting captain, Nathan Davey, had gathered together a team of eight OS whose dates of leaving covered the last 10 years, but they were still able to put rounds where they wanted, at least, most of them were. Nathan, still keeping up his shooting at Imperial College, London, top scored on the afternoon with 97, but he was closely followed by several of the school team who scored in the nineties, principally Semih Altinpinar with 94, who received the OS Shield for the best score for the school, closely followed by last year’s winner, Ben Spencer (92) and Vincent Bailey-Ladd (91). Other high scoring OS included Chris Harris (95) and Henry Gibson (94) and the back-up from other team members was just superior to that from the School, so giving OS victory.
Next year’s date is likely to be Wednesday 3 January 2018, watch this space for more details nearer the time.
