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.
Marchington has worked in the shooting press for nearly four decades as a writer, editor and photographer, and more recently as video producer. 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.
Future’s other leading field sports brands include Airgun Shooter, Gun Trade News, Sporting Rifle and The Shooting Show.
Paul Newman, group content director of Future, said: "We have a strong vision for developing our field sports content and I can’t think of anyone better than James to help us realise it. 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.”
Future is a member of FIPP.
