The team, who are still under-strength, beat Canada by two points as well as shooters from Kenya and Malaysia, losing out only to a team from the Army Target Rifle Club by ten points.

Conditions at the event were far from ideal with strong headwinds and intermittent heavy showers sent to test the rifle marksmen.

Speaking from the range, Jersey captain, Bruce Horwood, said that his side were pleased with their performance but need to do better next week if this early success was to be built upon.

‘We have several gears to move through yet,’ he said.

‘We beat Canada by two points yesterday and also had a convincing win over the Kenyans and Malaysians but, despite our efforts, the Army Target Rifle Club were too good for everyone.’
