List Of County Trophies

The SSRA can boast a whole array of fine trophies in their collection, of which they are always proud to present to those successful in the various competitions in which they compete.  Moreover these much prized trophies can only be won by shooters who are Staffordshire residents.

However, there is one exception to the above 'Staffordshire residents only' rule - and that is for those competing for The 'Come Day - Go Day' Salver, whereby those shooters need not be Staffordshire residents.  The only stipulation is that they must be members of a properly constituted Rifle Club.
