Good results at Barnsley

It continues to be a busy summer for our junior archers with some of our compounders heading up to Barnsley on the 18/19 August for the Archery GB Junior Key Event 4.

It was another very windy weekend but there was lots of great shooting despite the weather.

On the Saturday Liam Wright, Paige Jones and Thomas Lane all shot a 720 ranking round in the morning.  Liam ranked 3rd in Compound Junior Gents, Paige ranked 4th in Compound Cadet Ladies and Thomas ranked 3rd in Compound Cadet Gents.

After losing his first Head to Head match Liam progressed through to the bronze medal match which he won.

Paige Jones won her quarter final and semi-final matches with convincing wins to gain a place in the gold medal match.  It was a very close final but Paige won 136 to 134 to take the Gold medal.

Thomas Lane won his first match by 3 points but unfortunately lost out to Lewis Haslam in the semi-finals and ultimately finished in 4th place overall.

Sunday was the team and mixed team events and there were more medals for our juniors.  Liam Wright and Paige Jones won the gold medal in the mixed team event and Paige also won a bronze medal in the team event.

Our juniors now have an anxious wait to see if they have made it through to the Key Event finals which are being held at Lilleshall on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 September
