Great Sampford Youth Club were among the winners at the Essex Boys’ and Girls’ Club’s annual shooting competition.

Teams travelled from all over Essex to the ranges near Braintree, with youngsters trying their skills with shotguns and rifles, as well as black powder muskets and antique rifles and pistols.

Two teams from Great Sampford took part and for the 10th year in a row the junior team hit their target, winning their group competition.

In the 14 to 18-years event the team of Owen Hayden, Harry Moss, James Kincaid and Jacob Brown finished a respectable third in their group as Dagenham Boxing Club took first place.

In the 12 to 14-years section the team of captain Charlotte Arnold, Oliver Farthing, and brothers Harry and Harvey Gilbertson won the group, with Arnold having the highest individual score in all groups, with Farthing second.

Martin Boughtwood said: “We all had a barrel of fun and it is great to know we have so many young people in our village of such a high calibre. Well done!”
