Derek joined the Bisley instructing team in 2000, having been involved with clay shooting and field sports since his early twenties.
Derek is part of a shooting syndicate and has shot game at Luss Loch Lomond, Kings Walk Sussex, Stocks Down Hampshire and various other estates across Dorset, Hampshire and Sussex.
Being outdoors and meeting people interested in shooting and field sports makes for a perfect past time for Derek, away from his full time job as commercial director for a commercial pump distributor.
When Derek is not working he is a keen follower of motor racing, in particular Motor GP and Formula 1, and will always try and attend a circuit when possible. With his company actively involved in rugby sponsorship Derek also has a keen interest in rugby.
