A great result for the DCAA clout teams at the Inter-Counties clout in Kettering today. The longbow and barebow teams both took first place, with the recurve team coming second. Congratulations to all who took part.

Well done to Hollie, Alex & Jacob who came 2nd compound team. Jacob had to battle through 2 nose bleeds and hay fever but that didn't deter him. You ALL made me very proud. Well done and I hope that you all enjoyed it because I certainly did.


Well done to all the Derbyshire archers who took part in the Tri-Counties today! The recurve team won, the longbow team won, the compound team came second.


A brilliant effort from all concerned on yet another windy day! Special thanks to Aequus Archers who put on a great tournament with assistance from one or two other Derbyshire archers - you did Derbyshire proud! Thank you from Woody - your team manager!

Congratulations to Eva Henderson-Hirst , Will Bonynge and Struan Caughey who have all worked extremely hard to beselected for the Archery GB Performance Academy at Lillieshall.

All 3 are members of Derwent Bowmen and have been on an archery talent identification programme since may 2012. They have met, along with Alex Holmes, as a training group every week since May and have concentrated on Skills & Drills, strength and conditioning and fine tuning their techniques.

They have also attended EMAS squad coaching and the Derbyshire Hotshots coaching sessions which have all helped them to reach their goal of entry to the GB Academy. Much hard work to follow!!
