On Sunday 6 September, 16-year-old Darcy McBride, a Sixth Former at Bedford School, finished in first place in the U21 category of the British Open Sporting clay pigeon championship, held in the West Midlands. In the final, Darcy shot a 75 bird layout to tie for first place. This meant there was a shoot off in the afternoon, which again ended in a tie. This forced a sudden death for the title, and Darcy just took the top spot. Darcy is the youngest person to win this national competition since 1948, when the competition was founded. This victory follows his recent win in the Junior category at The Churchill Cup, another national event which took place on Friday 28 August in Yorkshire. Darcy told us, “To win this title is the biggest competition I could have won for my age group which is a massive achievement for me. Being the youngest person to ever win this title is also another great achievement that I am over the moon with and I can’t wait to see what I can do in the future ahead of me.”
