FFTA Winter League Round 7 Sywell 2018
This is one of the closest winter leagues I think we’ve had to date.
Three clubs going into this round at Sywell were in the running for the trophy with MidShires and Broadlands both on 38 points, Hereward not so far behind on 35 points. It was all to play for, all three teams needed to score well. Sywell didn’t disappoint with the wind machine in fact I think they ordered three of them.! With this wind I just knew scores would be low and some or a lot of luck was going to be needed to keep the grade up today. Read More…

Now 2018 Christmas out of the way and the flu well behind me I’m fit and ready for some serious FT competitions.
I started my year with a visit to Springfield ARC where they was holding round 5 of their SEFTA winter league, not being fully recovered but enough to need to get out. Here I managed a good performance 39/40 which really should have been a clear, never the less a very good start to the year but also the end to all my special batch of pellets…Read More
FFTA Winter League Round 3 Lea Valley 2017
FFTA Round 3 was always going to be tough at Lea valley shooting in the bowls with the wind swirling around making reading the wind a nightmare as usual. For some they made it look so easy as they shot their way through the targets in the bowl and seem to do well every year so I’ve now noticed. Read More…
FFTA Winter League Round 1 Hereward FT & ARC
Here we go again the FFTA Winter league kick’s off at Hereward FT & ARC Yaxley Peterbourgh.
Hereward is one of my favourite grounds but not the section we were about to shoot today. Last years presentation was shot on the same section with similar winds which I didn’t get to grips with so I wasn’t looking forward to this at all. Read More…

This ground is part of our FFTA Winter league circuit and can be mostly a bloody nightmare course due to the Sywell winds but on some very slim occasions it just lets you shoot well, would todays Grand Prix one of those days.?…Read more
