CPSA - 123409 – Greater London
GUN: THE SALVINELLI EXCLUSIVE 32"
I've been shooting since 22nd January 2011 when I had my first go at the age of 11.
I work hard to put forward a serious and professional level of commitment to the sport and do my best be a good ambassador for both my sponsors and clay shooting , this is important to me and demonstrated in July 2017 after winning the British Schools National Championships where I was fortunate to be chosen for the front cover and focus of CLAY SHOOTING MAGAZINE. and here is a couple of the professional photos.

My first registered competition was in August 2012, this is a record of my regional and national championship achievements since then in reverse order.2018 - TEAM GBR
A year of hard work including self analysis and discovery of what I really want out of the sport as I plan for my future in shooting for 2019 and beyond.Looking back, 2017 was a difficult year with a lot of sadness in my family which bled into the early part of 2018 but with the positive people that surround me and the amazing support they gave me, I was able to turn 2018 in to an amazing year of achievement by reaching a major sporting goal of shooting for theGBR-BICTSF COMPAK TEAM.
This is a huge personal achievement and not something that can simply be bought, it has to be earned by honing what you have and trying to repeat the results of the hard work. I have had to climb lots of personal obstacles to make the transition to this level of shooting and that is where the prize of personal achievement is found.
"If your working towards something - keep trying and don't give up"
I could not have made this stage without my sponsors atSouthdown Gun Club,Dartford Clay Shooting Club,Chris Potter Gunsand of course my Mum and Dad who have so much support for me.One of the proudest moments of my life so far.
Larnica Shooting Ground, Cyprus, June 2018
On a County representation level and with working mostly seven days a week every week, I haven't had much time to hit the competition circuit and so just train / practice after work in the summer or if it quietens down a bit when I'm working at the shooting ground. Even so, I managed to enter two County championships and won two County titles.

A massive thank you to everyone that has supported me this year in my shooting, my work and what I have had to do to make things happen.
Not as many titles as past years for the sole reason of timing and adjustments in my like but for me and I hope for my sponsors, making the GBR Compak team and representing my Country in the European Championships crowns everything I have done before.

My Home Shooting Grounds are Dartford Clay Shooting Club and Southdown Gun Club
who are both kindly part sponsoring me. if you haven't shot at these grounds then come and have a go as the grounds are fantastic, the targets are 1st class and you will be made welcome by all of the grounds team.
I shot and competed for the 2012, 2013 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 Kent County shooting Team and had some of the best shooting experiences ever. if you are a colt, Junior or an adult its a really good feeling to be able to shoot for your county and to win an inter counties championship title is a real achievement.
Below is a list of my sponsorship support, all of who I am very grateful too.
I could not do what I am doing without your kind sponsorship assistance and I am very happy to say they have decided to continue and sponsor me for 2017
Other kit I use are PILLA glasses of different shade strength depending on the light and that's about it really as they are the main things.
Cartridges: I use whatever I can afford as I save my winnings to fund my cartridges. I can't expect my parents to pay as they already do enough and gives me a sense of pride to do so.
I love all shooting disciplines that I have tried but my favorites are all the sporting ones, English Sporting, Sportrap, Compak and FITASC sporting.
I do shoot English Skeet now and then and I'm not too bad at that either and won the British Open Colts with a cracking 98/100 on day one of the competition.
One of my goals is to shoot 100/100 registered Skeet, my current registered PB is 99/100 so need just one more to make the 100 straight club although its not a priority
Its always developing, I shoot all disciplines in training and have developed my own stance, hold and technique that works for me. I have a coach who understands me and that is a real benefit.
As we are not all the same, I have learnt to work with my own body and develop what I have so it works for me, I ignore any comments from other people as only a good coach and my coach knows how I shoot and what we have done in training to adapt what I have to my best ability. if I'm shooting consistently good scores and making slow improvements then I'm doing something right.
