POCKLINGTON gun-slinger Luke Young continued some super successes in skeet shooting with a sixth-placed finish in the final of the Junior World Cup in Sydney - but he is not leaving it there.

As an 18-year-old last year, Young was selected for the Junior World Cup in Italy after grabbing his first cap at the Home International as the youngest England squad member.

Young finished off the year winning bronze in the juniors at the British Shooting Grand Final before winning the British Talent Pathway Championships. He has been offered another place on this competition for 2018.

His result in Australia was his best to date, shooting a personal best en route to the final where he finished behind competitors from China, Italy and India.

On what the remainder of 2018 holds for him, Young said: "My aims for the rest of the year are to do well in all the selection shoots to try to get into the England team for the Home International in Scotland.

"I am also hoping to be picked to represent Great Britain in the Junior World Cup in Suhl, Germany.

"At the end of the year, I am hoping to qualify again for the Grand Final, which is British Shooting's flagship event."
