ARCHERY: Silver spoon aces have golden touch

Have your say

ARCHERS from Spalding’s Silver Spoon Bowmen stole the show at a County Windsor at Friskney as they took the majority of medals on offer.

In very challenging and windy conditions, the Bowmen showed strength in depth across both the senior and junior divisions to claim the majority of awards available.

Leading the way with a new club record was junior girls Amy Gott, who won the recurve junior Windsor in style. Also on-song was teen ace Abbie Spinks. She was victorious in the won the junior girl compound short Windsor.

It was nearly a Silver Spoon hat-trick in the junior section, but Ian Prior was edged into second in the junior gents’ recurve short Windsor.

In the senior Windsor events, Ryan Mountney won the gents’ compound with a new club record, with John Fisher claiming third.

More success came with Lynn Fisher finishing second in the senior ladies’ recurve, with Lisa Spinks third.

Stephanie Mountney finished with the same score as the winner in the senior ladies’ compound, but was denied first place by having shot the least number of golds. There was also a third place for John Shinkin in the senior gents’ longbow.
