Tough round for Bideford shots

Joseph Bulmer

BIDEFORD Rifle Club’s latest results in both the Devon County Winter League and the North Devon League make dismal reading, with just two wins from the ten matches.

The A team won their Round 7 match in the Devon Winter League and remain at the top of Division 1 while the E team won their Round 5 match in the North Devon, but all the other teams were defeated.

Individually, the results look brighter. Martin Morgan still holds joint lead in the overall Devon League championship and Pete Thomson leads both the North Devon overall championship and the veterans, while Ann Travis tops the ladies and Alex Raymont heads the juniors.
