BURSCOUGH-based archery club Nethermoss Junior Archers were on target as they took part in a national competition.

The Archery GB Junior National Championships and Junior World Archery Star 2014 tournament took place earlier this month and involved a two day shooting event in Bristol.

And the local club saw success after Thomas Rice, 13, came first in the Compound Cup after getting a score of 1,301 which beat off competition from second place by nine points.

He also achieved a Gold English Cross award and gained another Junior Master Bowman score.

Meanwhile, Heather Hughes came 15th place with a score of 1,230 and also gained a Junior Master Bowman score and a Gold English Cross award. 

Associate club member Georgia Maryon, from High Elm Archers, and Kieran Shirley, from St Helens Archers, also took part in the event.

A spokesperson for Nethermoss Junior Archers, said: “All at Nethermoss Archers are very proud of their junior archers and continue to be very impressed with the skills and determination shown by each and everyone of them”.
