Great Britain shooting team member, Caroline Povey, is celebrating after being selected to represent Team England in this Summer’s Commonwealth Games.
 
Caroline, who is sponsored by Irwin Mitchell, will join an 11-strong clay target shooting team and be part of a shooting squad of 25. In addition to Caroline, the squad includes BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year Amber Hill and record setter and double gold medallist Charlotte Kerwood.
 
Caroline Povey said: "I am absolutely thrilled and very honoured to be selected to represent Team England at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. To be competing in a multi-sport event is going to be a new experience for me and I am really excited at the prospect.
 
"Like all athletes it has taken many years of dedication and training to reach the Games so to be able to have my friends, family and sponsors cheering me on in the stands will be a great reward for all of us.
 
"None of this would be possible without the support of my father and coach Joe Neville and the generous support I receive from my financial sponsors; Irwin Mitchell Solicitors and Adelphi Precision Engineering.

"I am really grateful for the support I have received from Irwin Mitchell over the past two years. Their financial assistance has enabled me to focus on my competitions and be at my best when it really mattered. I am delighted to have qualified for the Commonwealth Games and I can't wait to compete in Glasgow."

Expert Opinion
We are delighted that Caroline has been selected for the Commonwealth Games and wish her and the team all the very best in Glasgow. Her selection follows on from a successful 12 months competing here and overseas and her call up certainly recognises her dedication and hard work.”
