“On 23rd February 2014 I went to Cheltenham to shoot in a competition set up by Deer Park Archers and BWAA, I finished 5 overall and the disable section there were two parts, the first part I finished 3rd and the second part I finished 2nd and I won the BWAA handy cap adjusted trophy, I also shot a Personnel Best in the competition.
I am now being trained full time by Harry Heeley one of the Team GB Coaches at a high level.
On 9th March 2014 I went to the AAA County and open championships in Lilleshall Sports Centre in the competition I finished 4th place, only 10 points difference between myself and 1st place, in this competition last year I placed 14th, I also shot a Personnel Best in this competition.”
