Best in Their Field
More than 160 junior and senior archers gathered in Northern Ireland to take part in the 2016 All British and Open Field Championships.
They were greeted by sunshine, heavy showers and a warm welcome from hosts Ballyvally Archers. The shoot, at Greenmount College, County Antrim, was fiercely contested – but there were plenty of laughs and comradeship over the two days.
