Ollie and Chris then battled it out in a shoot-off that lasted for three rounds. Ollie eventually emerged in third place after scoring 10ex-10 in the last round.

Nick Fellows, chief executive of the CPSA commented: “This competition is not only an important one for these young shooters, but also a great opportunity to showcase the sport to a wider audience and demonstrate just what it takes to be achieve success in clay shooting competitions. The course this year was challenging, and these young sportsmen demonstrated not only a great level of skill, but also a fantastic sporting demeanour.”
