A historic weekend for DNAA as we submitted County teams for the first time in years – Barebow and Recurve (both days) and Longbow (Sunday only). Our County Longbow team won the trophy on Sunday, our first county team win since 2006!!
Whitburn Archers were the winning Club Recurve Team both days! (Abby Thornton, Shaun Gallagher, Eleanor Thornton, Jared Thornton) Jared was also 1st place Gents Recurve both days, and Eleanor 1st place Junior Ladies Recurve both days. Abby was 3rd place Lady Recurve on Saturday.
For Longbow Ladies, Diane Jobson was 3rd and Helen Horsley (Riverside) 2nd on metric Saturday. On imperial Sunday, Helen was 2nd place and Diane 1st. Both ladies were in the winning County Longbow team with Trev Cameron-Brown (Green Lane Archers) Diane also broke two county imperial records and achieved her Gold tassel award. Rob Say (Tynedale Archers) picked up his first imperial tassel (black) and then promptly signed up for Nationals 🏹
