Shropshire clay-pigeon shooter Owen Huffer has attracted the attention of the sport's top coaches, just a year after first picking up a gun.

The 14-year-old from Ludlow is now in the frame for being groomed for the 2012 London Olympics.

"That would be great, but it's still a long way away," he told BBC Radio Shropshire.

"Things are going well. I'm doing well in competitions, and my first aim is to make the England squad."

Proud dad Richard is right behind his young prodigy.

"Owen's taken to the sport like a duck to water," he said, "and with the right coaching and the right facilties I think he can go as far as he wants to."
