HOT shot Roy Ellis has fired his way to the junior individual title at the Home Inter nationals.
Shooting English skeet, the 18-year-old produced another show of stunning accuracy by missing with just one out of 100.
Ellis, from Runcorn, said: 'It was brilliant, really. I couldn't have asked for a better shoot than a 99 on my first cap.
'I w as nervous and all that but I just missed one out of the first round and then did a 75 straight, so I overcame my nerves.
'I thought because it was my first time and didn't know anybody I was going to be left out of things but the other team members made me welcome and that makes you feel good about yourself.'
Ellis took the overall U21s trophy at Bellymena, despite competition from the best which hosts Northern Ireland plus Scotland, Republic of Ireland, Wales, Isle of Man and Jersey could offer.
He also went home with The J Lakey Trophy as the top-performing England junior.
In July, Ellis became the first U21 ever to gain a perfect century score in an England selection shoot.
The remaining challenge in a year of rapid progress is the Nationals in October at which up-and-coming brother Jon Ellis, 16, will also be part of Cheshire's team.
'I hope my brother can get into the Home International Team as well,' said the new individual champ.
'He beat me at the weekend in the West Midlands Area Championships - by one clay.
'I just got a bit sloppy and lost concentration on my last round and got a 23 while Jon shot a 25 to beat me. He deserved it.'
