Future Olympic hopeful receives boost from RGB

Chris Glover, 16, is currently studying for his A’ Levels at Petroc’s Barnstaple campus in North Devon. He began pistol shooting in 2012 and whilst representing the Devon Scout Team at the Scout Inter County competition, caught the eye of the Great Britain Junior Pistol Squad.

Most recently, Glover represented Great Britain in the Junior International competition, which took place at the home of UK shooting in Bisley, Surrey.

Rob Allen, operations manager at RGB Building Supplies, said: “We fully recognise that young sportsmen and women face a number of challenges in pursuing their sporting ambitions and it’s important to us to support talented people local to us.

“We truly believe that Chris has a bright future ahead of him and are pleased to be able to support him with this sponsorship.”
