Two Scottish Archery members have won their categories at the British Field Championships. This year more than 130 archers gathered at the Mount Stewart estate in Northern Ireland for the 2019 All British and Open Senior and Junior Field Archery Championships – and the results were just as spectacular as the surroundings.
The guest of honour was Olympic and Commonwealth champion, 1972 Sports Personality of the Year and sports ambassador Dame Mary Peters. She watched some of the finest international field athletes tackle the two-day Arrowhead-status event at the National Trust-owned property.
The athletes shot a World Archery round of 24 marked and 24 unmarked targets over the two days.
Jessica Nilsson followed in a long line of Scottish women compound archers taking the title of British Field Champion, and Carol-anne Seez was second in the women barebow category. As the Open comeptition winner, Orla O'conner, shoots for Ireland, Carol-anne Seez took the title as British Champion.
