Leslie Johnstone's bid for the 2012 Olympics continued by him competing at the Southern Counties selection shoot in May.
Matt Bonfield, managing director of Hilton Supplies Builders Merchants said: "He shot very well scoring 117 out of 125, but unfortunately, Leslie missed the final by one place.
"This month Leslie heads for Yorkshire and the next selection shoot. We all wish him luck."
In only his first year as a senior, Olympic skeet specialist Johnstone has already qualified for the GB team and has shot at the European Championships in Croatia, as well as the World Championships in Slovenia.
