Student Bio:

Taylor has been shooting since he was 8 years old, he was taken out clay shooting for the day by his grandad, Gordon Webster and has never looked back. He shoots mostly English Sporting though shoots some other disciplines for fun.

 In May 2013 at 14 years old he earned his place on the GB Junior Compak team where he took part in the European Championships in Italy and World Championships in Russia. At 16 years old he Qualified to shoot for the England Junior Sporting Team at the world championships in Florida, USA and South Africa.

Whilst he shoots because he enjoys it winning is always nice and to help him maintain his consistency he trains reguarly with Philip Thorrold at his academy in Diss, Norfolk.

Taylors goals are high, to be the best in the world. With his ambititon, drive, discipline and determination I really think someday that might just happen.
