Eight-year-old Matilda Craven achieved third place in the under-12s Junior National Archery Championships – almost six months to the day since she started her archery lessons.

Shooting on a compound bow, she shot 288 arrows with 242 golds over the two-day competition. She also achieved her Junior Master Bowman award.

Tillie is a member of North End Archers in Swineshead and has been training with her coach Terry Ducker at least three times a week in the run-up to this major competition.
