Laurie's on target again

Laurie and Robert

A Pembrokeshire shooter, who took up the sport just over two years ago, has won his third Gold medal.

Laurie Brown from the Pembroke Dock-based Modern Print Inclusive Target shooting club won Gold in division 6 in this year's national championships.

The top acoustic shooter from Tenby won his first national Gold in division 10 in 2011. The following year he was promoted to division 8, which he also promptly won.

This year he found himself in division 6, which he has now won and is likely to be promoted yet again for the coming season.

Not bad for someone who only started shooting in March 2011!

Robert Brown, Laurie's shooting companion at the club, is also doing well; notching up another win recently in the West Kent League with another medal to add to his collection.

Angela Miles, disability sports development officer for Sport Pembrokeshire - Pembrokeshire County Council's sports development service - presented both men with their medals recently.

"Laurie and Robert are just two of the stalwarts of the Modern Print target club, which is going from strength to strength," she said.

The Modern Print club is based at St Patrick's Community Hall in Pembroke Dock and includes both sighted and visually impaired members.

Any visually impaired would-be shooter - adult or youngster - is invited to attend the club and try out its range.
