Charterhouse shooting team victorious at Cambridge University
On Sunday 3 February, the Charterhouse CCF shooting team had an extremely successful trip to Cambridge University for an away match, returning with an impressive winning score of 1491 to 1436.
After the match, the team captain of the Cambridge University Rifle Association and Small-bore Club Rupert Fitzsimmons, kindly gave the team a whistle-stop tour of the University.
Speaking about the day, pupil Charlie Reay commented: “The match against Cambridge was a great experience for everyone in the team as it pushed our abilities, enabling us to become better at the sport. We also gained an insight into what life is like at Cambridge University while talking to some of their team members and during a tour of the town. To get the win against Cambridge was a great achievement for us.”
The team are looking forward to competing against Cambridge again with Full-bore rifles at Bisley this summer.
We offer our congratulations to all the boys who took part in the competition.
