Matthias Azzopardi was the overall winner of the Cassar Cup, an Event that was organised at the Bidnija Shooting Ranges on two qualification rounds of twenty five clay targets plus Finals Stages

This was the first time ever that the fifteen year old junior Athlete made it on the podium and he surely did it in style as he went for nothing less but the highest step to claim the first place overall.

Joining Matthias Azzopardi were Noel Scicluna who finished in second place and Ben Attard who finished third overall.
