Fareham vs Portsmouth City (The Arthur Lee Local Final)

This Monday saw the local final of the Arthur Lee cup.  The winners of this match go on to face whichever club wins to represent Southampton & District League.  For the first time in quite a few years, Portsmouth City managed to reach the local final where we faced Fareham.  Just like the Duttson Final we shot on a neutral range, this time Portsmouth Railway Rifle Club kindly provided the use of their range and a big thanks go to John Ring for scoring the cards, and again to Wayne Dugan for running the event.

This competition was teams of 6, shooting 2 cards each.  Unlike a few of our other competitions, every team member's scores counted.  Here's how it went:

Fareham - 1158

J. Lacey (97, 96)
D. Shepperd (96, 97)
D. Spendlove (99, 99)
P. Randall (98, 98)
T. Read (96, 94)
J. Hounsell (94, 94)
  Portsmouth City - 1151

M. Nevatte (99, 97)
S. Hart (97, 95)
G. Scruton (99, 99)
I. Cooper (96, 99)
A. Nevatte (96, 94)
P. Upchurch (90, 90)

So a close match but unfortunately Portsmouth City will not go on to represent Portsmouth & District this year against Southampton.  Well done to Fareham and we wish them good luck in the final.
