Lizzie & Susan Picked For England!

Congratulations to Lizzie Cantopher and Susan Corless of NAC. Both archers have been picked to represent England at this years National Indoor Championships in Coventry on 7th December.

This is the second year running that Lizzie has been selected for the ladies recurve team. Having shot for England at last years event, she helped England to victory over the other home nations.

For Susan to be selected for the ladies compound team is a fantastic achievement. Having only switched from shooting recurve to compound less than a year ago, when she thought she might have to give up shooting completely.

James Mason has been named as a reserve for the gents compound team.
