These of course are also new county and regional records also.

Jon also equalled the current junior gents compound national record for a single FITA 18 round at the EMAS Regional Indoor Championships on 18th November 2012 with a score of 584.

As well as these scores, Jon has also broken the county junior compound record for a Worcester round by achieving the perfect score of 300 points during Targetcraft’s open Friday evening session on 12th October. Then on the 14th October at Kettering Archers Open Worcester Tournament, Jon shot another perfect 300 points while shooting in the senior compound category.

Look out for plenty more scores from Jon this season!!
