Avon pair are in fine form

ALISON McMillan and Colin Fulford did the double once again as both shot a possible for the second week in succession to help Avon to a comfortable Stratford & District Airgun League win against Clifford.

Trevor Morris shot 33 and Ian Perkins 32 for the home team but, with some loose shots and an A N Other score of 28, Clifford were never any real threat as they lost 218-208.

Wilmcote again had the highest score when they shot against Home Guard. They took an early lead with 34 from Adam Clarke and 35 from brother Jamie – his seventh in this season’s league matches.

John Maycock shot 32 and the other team members 33, including a personal best for Ashleigh Clarke.

Such solid shooting survived a late attack from Snitterfield when Tom Morris and Alan Brookes both just missed out on possibles with 34 and Andy Morris shot his fourth possible this season.

Having to take an A N Other score of only 28 did not help Snitterfield’s chances either as Wilmcote won 233-225.

Binton A had six shooters and MEB only five when they met.

Andy Smith and Will Cemis both shot 34s and had the highest scores in the match, whilst Derek Powers shot a season-best of 32.

Father and son Paul and Tim Onions shot 31s as Binton won with 216 points – their lowest winning score this season – to MEB’s 206.

Avenue went ahead against Binton B when Alan Crichton shot a personal best of 34 but they saw the advantage vanish as Jo Everett struggled with a loaned gun.

Steve Parrack’s 33 brought the points to the home team and a possible from Paul Lowe put Avenue three in front.

Steve Garlick and Peter Mole brought their total to 214 points, whilst Binton only had six shooters as Steve Hodges scored 33 and an A N Other score helped them to finish with 202 points.

The final league matches were due to take place last night (Thursday). They were: Avon v Wilmcote; Binton B v Clifford; Home Guard v Binton A; MEB v Avenue.

The Christmas shoot will take place at Wilmcote on Thursday, December 17.
