Hull Cartridge, Mercury Hearing and Ed Lyons.  

Who would be your dream sponsor and why? 

I would particularly like a gun sponsorship contract or some assistance with entry fees.  

What are your shooting aims and goals for 2018/19? 

I will again be seeking to qualify for the England Team for the home international and European Championship in Wales.  I aim to improve consistency in my shooting and increase my average scores and hopefully pick up some titles and trophies.
