Livingston in top two

BRAIDWOOD luck held with a lovely day for Sunday’s shoot for Christianne’s Crystal Trophy.

Donald Livingston (Edinburgh) shot 34 ex 40 to pip Stuart Donaldson (Musselburgh) to the lead with Jim Brodie (Denholm) taking third place on 32.

The second layout generated even tighter results with Donaldson, Brodie and Kyle Smith (Dunbar) all on 33 ex 40. Livingston was one of a chasing pack of three just one adrift on 32.

Donaldson and Livingston shared the day’s aggregate title, both having shot 66 ex 80. Brodie was closest on 65 and John Ross (Whitburn) came home on 63.

At the next shoot at Braidwood, on October 7, the October Quaich is at stake and Donald Livingston is the defending gun. Entries close 12.30. All welcome.
