Antony is returning to Australia for the third time as a GB team member but, well before he first attained international honours, he spent an extended period in Australia as a young man.  He has shot a Queen’s Meeting in every State and Territory, apart from the Northern Territory where he has, however, shot on the impressive Alice Springs range. He remains a proud winner of both the season opening and closing shoots at the Meekatharra Rifle Club in Western Australia.

Many consider Antony to have learned to shoot in Australia; in reality, he acquired many of his skills at Uppingham School. Since then, he has garnered an impressive record of international success. This is his 9th GB tour, and his 5th Palma team. He has represented England and Great Britain 54 times to date in ‘Big 5’ matches, and competed for England at two Commonwealth Games – 1994 and 1998.

The list of his shooting accomplishments is long and impressive: amongst other things, he has won Her Majesty the Queen’s Prize at Bisley three times, been the Individual World Long Range Champion twice, and top scored in two Palma Matches.

Antony runs a pet and equine crematorium from his home in Norfolk, and is supported by his wife, Vicki, daughter Rosie and son Tom.
