Future appoints James Marchington as editor-in-chief

Future has appointed James Marchington to the newly created position of editor-in-chief of Clay Shooting, with responsibility for all clay pigeon shooting content created across Future’s print and digital channels, including Clay Shooting and clay-shooting.com. He will also consult on the magazine’s branded events, including the Clay Shooting Classic and British Schools & Young Shots Championship.

He worked as a reporter at the London 2012 Olympics and was the first journalist to interview Peter Wilson after he won his historic Double Trap gold medal.

Clay Shooting is a much-respected magazine and its digital channels are showing exciting growth – we have big ambitions in this area and I’m looking forward to working closely with James to take our brands to new heights.”

James Marchington, editor-in-chief of Clay Shooting, added: “I am so lucky that I am able to combine my work with my lifelong passion for shooting. I have a special affection for Clay Shooting magazine, having been involved with the title since its early days. I am looking forward to building on what’s already been achieved, to make it the magazine that clay shooters want and deserve.”
