|West of Scotland|
Following last year's first win since 1965 in target shooting's National Match, Scotland repeated their victory over England at the NRA Annual Prize Meeting. Bettering last years score by five points, they won by the narrowest of margins, finishing on a total of 2075.279, just two points ahead of England. This was also the first time since 1900 that Scotland have won the magnificent trophy in consecutive years. No fewer than seven of the team of twenty firers made the maximum 105, with Capt. Alexander Gill leading the way with 18 of his 21 shots in the smaller V-bull. One of the five target teams completed the match with all four firers making the maximum score. Team Captain, Lindsay Peden, was delighted with the win, who retires from the position with the enviable record of two wins in three years, and paid tribute to the parts played in the victory by all the team members, firers coaches and the support team.
