Daniel Blake

This is Dan's first GB cap. He has visited the Channel Islands with the NRA team and Canada in 2007 with the very successful GB U25 team that won the U25 World Long Range Championships. This last visit to Connaught was a memorable one as he won a number of trophies including the Otter, Coulter and Harrison. Dan has gained considerable team shooting experience with the County of London team, one of the strongest county teams in the last 10 years and also with the GB U25 team. At home Dan has a number of St George’s, and HM Queens Final appearances, represented England in the National Match as a reserve and shot the European Long Range Championships.  

Dan works for the Wessex Group as a “senior” Information Communication Technology Technician where he keeps their IT running smoothly. Dan is a keen repairer of old rifles specialising in Lee Enfield’s which he restores back to shooting condition - once was the time he could have earned good money making the old "steam gun" shoot on Stickledown.
