“I derive a great deal of pleasure introducing people to this great sport of ours. From the novice breaking their first targets, through coaching the experienced shot on the more challenging target presentations, to identifying the problems that creep into the game and clay shooters repertoire over the years. I am always striving to improve the shooting experience whether by adding specialist clay traps or the addition of all-weather stands. It is an ongoing commitment.”

I have experience in game and clay shooting and I am happy to coach in the field or on a clay ground. The best part of coaching for me is seeing the smile on a novice’s face when they break their first clay.
