SELKIRK sureshot Darren Brown has become the youngest member to be signed up to the Scotland Under-21 rifle shooting squad.

At the age of 13, the Selkirk Rifle Club member has shot to the top of the international tree and is eager to continue that progress under the country’s top coaches.

He told TheSouthern: “You could have scraped me off the ceiling when I got the call.

“I’m really excited about it now, though, and I am looking forward to working with the other members of the squad and the Scottish coach Ian Thomson.”

Darren was selected from hundreds of applicants after filling in an application form in which he had to list his achievements. As one of the local club’s top shooters, Darren competed for the Scottish Junior team earlier this year and is more than ready to take the step up.
