Fife Archery Championships

The second event of the 2017 Annual Fife Sports Festival organised by Disability Sport Fife (DSF) and supported by the Fife Sports and Leisure Trust and Fife Council, was held at Queen Anne HS in Dunfermline. The Fife Indoor Archery Championships have been part of the Sports Festival programme since the mid 70s but this was the first occasion that the event has been held in the west of Fife.

Queen Anne HS Archery Club and Queen Anne HS Community Use came to the rescue when it was clear that DSF was experiencing difficulties finding a venue in central Fife. DSF is indebted to Kirk Hannah and the young archery club volunteers who played such a significant role in the running of the Championships. DSF is also indebted to Anna Capon, Ronan Capon, Ian Paterson and Scott Fenton from Fife Council whose interest in relocating the event made a group of enthusiastic archers very happy.

All the participants in the 2017 Championships access archery coaching through West Fife Community Support Services. Archers were grouped into two divisions according to their level of ability and experience. Results were as follows:

Division 1:
Gold – Paul Arthur
Silver – Wayne Sammut and Craig Pollock
Bronze – Aaron Kean

Division 2:
Gold – Lauren Jack
Silver – James Cormack
Bronze – Ryan Cormack
