RGS Alumnus Jack Ruane Selected For England Shooting Team

Alumnus Jack Ruane (2010-17) had his second England selection shoot last weekend and Jack now has a place on the Junior England DTL shooting team. Down-the-line (DTL) clay pigeon shooting is a variation of trap shooting and competitors use a double-barrelled shotgun and are allowed to fire both barrels at a single target released on the traditional call of ‘Pull!’.

Despite a knee injury and travelling hundreds of miles commuting back and forth from University to train and compete, Jack has achieved his ambition of representing his country. 

Well done to Jack and we look forward to following his progress.
