Student Bio:

I am 16 years old, I have a huge passion for shooting having been brought up on a family farm in Suffolk. I started shooting on the farm with my Father at the age of 7, more recently from the age of 12 I turned my interest to clay shooting where I compete at a higher level for my age.

I have been a member of the CPSA for 4 years and I am currently in AA now. I have been a part of the Phillip Thorrold Shooting Academy for 4 years now, I have a lesson every 2 months or if I have a big shooting competition on I have more near the time. Since I have been in the academy having lessons I have won many competitions.

My ambition is to be the best in the world. A few tips for people who are starting the sport, it is all about the concentration, try not to get annoyed if you drop a clay and keep on going even when your scores are getting lower. To get through your bad patches don’t give up! Everyone goes through them and comes out a lot stronger, the scores will get better.
