Congratulations in Order for James Wilkinson


Article written by 30 August 2012

Congratulations are in order for British Clay Shot James Wilkinson. James who is currently sponsored by William Powell recently became a father for the first time and is enjoying life as a dad!

Despite this new commitment, James has still been finding time to get out and shoot, and he updates us on his progress below;

The last few weeks have been hectic, having had a couple of league shoots for the emergency services.

As I also shoot for the army I have been doing registered shoots most weekends which is really good competition practise for me.

I also shot in the Sporting World Championships run by the CPSA and although I had a fantastic weekend, I felt that my shooting was not as good as it could have been – I am hoping for better results at the British Open which I’m shooting at on the 30th August.

On a personal note, I have just finished another 3 weeks of rehab at Headly Court which consisted of intense physio most days, and I am also waiting on another operation to either replace my hip or try and clean the socket out.

I watched the Games closely and what a fantastic result for Peter Wilson in the double trap I will have to get practising I would love to be able to shoot at that level some day!
