Additional information

COMMONWEALTH HISTORY
Commonwealth Games debut at Glasgow 2014 as one of the youngest fullbore shooters. Missed medal by just two points, eventually finishing fifth. (Athlete, 31 Oct 2017).

FAMILY RIVALRY
He and father Gary were in the running for the Northern Ireland fullbore rifle shooting squad at Glasgow 2014 but selectors plumped for youth over experience. "I still think I’m the best shooter in the family," Gary joked. "The selectors have made a mistake. I was fourth in the selection for this Games. I was third for the Games in Delhi and fourth again for the Games before that. I’ve been trying very hard to get into the top two but just missed out." (swindonadvertiser.co.uk, 18 Feb 2014)
