How did you get involved in archery?

Started archery as a junior learning the sport at my school aged 14. Went on to be a junior master bowman and won quite a few comps with recurve. Gave up at 16 to follow a career as a teenager! Took up the sport again 40 ish years later starting with recurve which I was starting to get the hang of then someone gave me a longbow and I was hooked!

What are your shooting highlights?

I have really enjoyed the longbow competition scene and have met so many great people

Your goals and ambitions for 2018 and beyond?

Hope to continue for as long as I can hang in there!
