Featured Team Members
When asked to join the management team for this tour i didn’t know the world was about to be knocked sideways by a pandemic that would postpone us a couple of years and put us on course for “plan G”!
I am delighted to be returning to Borden after a very long time and very much looking forward to a first visit to Montreal.
Our team has a wide range of experiences and it has been enormous fun working with them all including my son Jack who will put a keen edge on my own competitive nature.
Off the range I enjoy scuba diving in beautiful places around the world with Zoe and getting out in the countryside with a shotgun in the crook of the arm with Fergus our springer spaniel.
Reg is a Chartered Accountant who owns a recruitment agency in the South of England. Although Australian by birth, he arrived in the UK in 1983 and the country has suffered ever since! He started his shooting career as a cadet in 1971 when laid up with a rugby injury.
Reg has toured overseas on 11 previous GB teams including 7 to Canada, one to Australia in 2005 as Captain and was a target coach for the GB Palma winning teams in 2007and 2015. His personal achievements include 25 Queen’s final badges, 6 Grand Aggregate crosses and 12 St.George’s badges. Inducted into the ‘big five’ in 2016, he Captained the winning Kolapore match that year with a record score on ICFRA targets.
His is married to Jennifer and has four children, two of which, Nick and Tim, are already avid fullbore shots. Reg’s other hobbies include fly fishing, share investing and the development of a golf resort in British Columbia.
Lindsey started shooting at Dollar Academy when she was 13. This will be her fourth visit to Canada to compete – She first visited as an Atheling in 2013, and has been lucky enough to return two more times with GB and Scotland since then.
She has never shot in Quebec before so particularly looks forward to competition there. This is Lindsey’s first overseas tour since the last U25 World championships in New Zealand where she came 5th in individuals and top scored in the team match – she hopes to have similar success this summer.
Outside of shooting she is an enthusiastic (but not talented) rock climber and runner.
Michael started shooting as a Cadet in the Campbell College CCF and is now the shooting officer in the Contingent. He is a regular for Ireland in the National and Mackinnon matches and is a member of the Northern Ireland Commonwealth Games Squad.
Individual successes include winning five Northern Ireland Championships, the Jersey Summer Meeting and in 2022 Michael was the first competitor in 26 years to achieve the Irish double, by winning the Irish Open and Northern Ireland Championships in the same year. In 2018 he was proud to Captain and shoot for his club team when they won the Astor County Championships for the first time. Michael is also a member of the URA Fullbore Committee, the governing body for fullbore target rifle shooting in Northern Ireland. This is the Belfast man’s first GB cap and he is delighted it is to Canada. With many relatives living there, it is a country close to his heart.
A professional photographer, Michael is grateful for the support of his ever patient wife Sara and their children Amy, Robbie and Harry who are all studying at university.
