Southdown Talent Pool 2016

The Southdown Shooting School Talent Pool competition, has created a great deal of interest from shooters and aspiring shooters alike, the ground breaking event was keenly supported by Edgar Brothers the UK importer of Zoli Guns and NSI Nobel Sport Italia ammunition, with Talent Pool days held over four weekends in the autumn of 2016. We invited shooters of all ages to take part and vie for the prize of being selected as Talent Pool winner 2016/17 and be sponsored by Southdown Shooting School, Zoli Guns and NSI and receive a combined prize package worth over £9,000, which included a Zoli Z Gun, fitted to the winner, 5000 cartridges from NSI, Branded clothing, instruction and mentoring with Southdown Shooting School’s Head Coach, Simon Arbuckle.

Over the four talent pool weekends, we selected ten candidates to take part on the final day which was held at the shooting school on Saturday 19th November. The finalists were lucky with the weather, with a brilliant bright sunshine, although not warm by any stretch of the imagination. The event was designed to be a bit more testing with the competitors taking part in a 100 target competition, to see how they responded under the pressure of having to post a good score.

There were some great scores on the day, but what we hadn’t told the finalists, was that the winner would not be selected by the score alone. To complete the process, we held a video interview to help us with the selection of the Talent Pool winner. After much deliberation, the judges finally selected Reece Dunne on a majority of 6 to 3 on the day. Shaun Miller, Southdown Shooting School’s Managing Director, said “Reece stood out as a raw talent and I am looking forward to working with him over the coming months, with the end goal of him taking part in the CPSA British Open 2017, I would like to thank all the sponsors of the Talent Pool and entrants who made the event really successful”.

Keep up to date with Reece’s progress, watch this space and follow us on social media to see how he gets on with his clay shooting journey.
