The Great Britain Gallery Rifle Team for 2020

GB Gallery Rifle TeamMoving into the 2020 season the GB Gallery rifle team has a new captain and Vice captain. Taff Wilcox steps down after two seasons which included a tour to compete in the IGRF Worlds in South Africa in late 2019.

Gary Bowden takes over as captain with Phil Wood as Vice. The 2020 season is considered a ‘standard’ season according to the new captain. Tours to Ireland in the Summer and Germany in early Winter will take place. The traditional Phoenix meeting home match will also take place at the end of May where we hope to host as many of the IGRF nations as possible.
