ARCHERY: Ryan shoots new record

Have your say

SPALDING archer Ryan Mountney stole the show with a new county record in Sunday’s first round of the Boston Indoor Archery Tournament.

It came in the Gents U/18 Compound event. Shooting as an adult, the Silver Spoon Bowmen member scored 299 out of a possible 300.

John Fisher equalled his own personal best to finish third with 294.

Stephanie Mountney also shot a personal best and new club record in winning the Senior Ladies’ Compound event.

New longbow archer John Shinkin crowned two good days for himself in shooting a new club record in the Senior Gents’ Longbow event to finish second against a number of very experienced longbow archers.

This followed a personal best and another club record and provisional County record in the Portsmouth round shot the previous evening at Holbeach Youth Club.

Lynn Fisher shot a new personal best in the Senior Ladies Recurve to ensure she and her husband John retained the Husband and Wife Trophy.
