LEEK Gun Club’s Chris Daniels was bang on target at the recent English Sporting Gamebowl Cup Championship.

The 29 year old, pictured right, finished top gun of more than 1,000 entries to lift the coveted trophy at the Westfield clay pigeon shooting ground in Gloucestershire.

He also won the White Gold Challenge Series final to establish himself as a double national champion.

The White Gold Challenge began back in February this year, with the first of the 32 qualifying rounds taking place at Westfield in freezing temperatures.

Out of the hundreds of shooters a total of 64 secured a place in the grand final, including UK European and world champions. One of the bookies favourites, Martin Myers was still in contention until John Lee scuppered his chances.

Lee then lost out to Chris Childerhouse who went on to taste defeat himself against Daniels, the fromer junior world champion, in the grand final.

Daniels and Steve Clarke still had some shooting to do as the winners of the gold and silver categories had to shoot another round to decide whose name went on the trophy.

True to form, Danies stormed to victory shooting 18, while Clarke scored 11.

After being presented with his two trophies, Daniels said: "What a fantastic weeeknd's shooting topped off by winning the double.

I would never have dreamt that."
