Bought up at Stockton, Barney spent the 1990’s working in London as an investment banker before returning to Stockton in 1999 and developing the shoot from a family affair to what it is today. He is worryingly passionate about shooting and takes huge pride in running an efficient but friendly day.
Assistant Shoot Captain
Jonti joined the team in 2017 from a previous existence as a chicken buyer. Having grown up helping his father with the family syndicate he is familiar with all aspects of managing a shoot and hosting days. At 6’ 7” he is tall enough that no-one argues with him on a shoot day.
Kevin started at Stockton in 1976 and has seen many changes in that time. He has been instrumental at building up Stockton Shoot and he and Barney reckon they have created nearly 100 different drives in that project. He moved to run Ballington in 2018.
