The Novice Cup is a shooting award for a team of young cadets in the wing. Cadets Amber Tizzard, Matthew Fisher and Luke Smith of 2418 (Sherwood) Sqn shot on the 12th of May 2010, with the no.8 rifle at the TA centre, Wigman Road. They scored a possible 25 out of 30 points.
These cadets have brilliant marksmanship skills, and rightly deserved first place. Cdt Amber Tizzard said “I thought it was brilliant experience, achieving first place and we hope to do it again next year.”
Cdt Matthew Fisher said “I was very surprised to come first, because I knew we had done very well but, I didn’t think we would come first. So there’s a great sense of achievement, when we heard that we won”
Cdt Luke Smith said “It was great fun with a fantastic outcome at the end.”
On final parade at Wing Field Day, we were proudly presented with the well deserved shield, from Wing Commander Dickinson.
Cadets – Smith, Tizzard and Fisher.
