Most recently one of our members Kieran Slater has gained a place in the Junior GB team and is also a member of the Junior Talent Identification Squad looking for future Olympic archers which is based at Lilleshall. This is a fantastic achievement for Kieran.
Kieran started shooting at the age of 11 and has worked very hard both at home, with the support of his family and at the club with the coaching of Keith Parsons and Graham Williams. Now at age 16 Kieran is ranked within the top 5 juniors in the country.
Kieran took part in his first International tournament in May 2010, The European Junior Cup in Reggio Calabria in Italy. In July 2010 he is due to shoot for Great Britain at The European Outdoor Junior Championship in Winnenden in Germany.
As a club we are very proud to have one of our members gain such a high achievement which is well deserved for all the time and dedication he puts in, not only for himself but for the benefit of other club members with his help, advice and good humour. We hope to see Kieran progress within the sport and continue to achieve great things in the future.
