Home archers stole the show as Spalding’s Silver Spoon Bowmen hosted the prestigious East Midlands Archery Society Championships.
The competition, held on the Sir John Gleed School field, was the leading regional event for individuals within the region during the outdoor season.
The two individual stand-out performances on the day went to two female archers – one senior and one junior.
Junior ace Amy Gott won the under-14 junior ladies’ recurve competition with a Lincolnshire county record some 80 points higher than her previous best.
Also shining was senior lady compound winner Emily Must, who as well as shooting was the tournament organiser – running only her second competition for the club.
Ryan Mountney won the senior gents compound competition too, while talented junior lady Abbie Spinks was victorious in the under-16 compound event.
Stephanie Mountney came third in the senior lady compound behind Emily Must, but had the reward of winning the Regional Club Compound Trophy with Must, her son Ryan and John Fisher for the Bowmen.
The health of the sport of archery within Lincolnshire was further demonstrated by a spree of other wins for archers from Lincoln and Sleaford.
