Headlines in a Bottle

Harry Bottle, from Lugg Valley Company of Archers, has been hitting the headlines recently in the Hereford Times.

Harry, 10, took part in a competition at Long Mynd Archers in Church Stretton on 8th April 2017. The competition was a junior World Record Status 720 round. Harry shot a WA 80/30 round. He achieved a score of 515, taking the National Record for the Under 14 Boys Compound.  Even more impressive is that he was just 9 years old at the time of shooting!

Harry has also been busy representing the West Midlands at Welbeck Archers (near Sheffield) on 16th July 2017. Shooting a metric 4 he came 1st in the junior boys compound.

It’s A Family Affair

The article which appeared in the Hereford Times is a nice piece and helps to raise the profile of Archery in the County. It is just a shame that they didn’t name Harry’s father correctly! We would like to congratulate his Dad, Chris Bottle, on being selected for the Seniors and wish them both luck at Nottingham.

Well done Harry!
