A TARGET pistol shooter from Beccles could be representing England in the Commonwealth Games next year.
Andy Graver, who lives in Bluebell Way, has been selected for the Team England National Pistol Squad with just four other shooters. It is possible that all five will travel to India for the Commonwealth Games, however a lack of funding could mean that only three go along.
Either way, Andy feels that he has a very good chance of going as he is about third in the rankings.
“I'm pretty confident,” said Andy, 44. “It would be a dream come true, a fantastic experience.”
