The final leg of the 2018 National Tour is over and the stage is set for the grand finals which will be held at Lilleshall on 15-16 September.

Stage six was hosted by Oxford Archers as part of its Team Challenge Weekend. One hundred and 80 archers lined up to take one last shot at improving their rankings and getting to the final. But who succeeded?

In the compound competitions, Blackthorn’s Duncan Busby took the victory ahead of Matthew Wong of Lethen Archers, with Barnsley’s Adam Carpenter third.

Polish international Mariya Shkolna, who lives in the Ukraine, took the stage six victory, beating Sarah Moon of Burton Bridge into second spot. Susan Corless of Northampton Archery Club was third.

Jonathan Tate of Clacton Archers finished ahead of Oxford’s David Timmins to take the honours in the recurve category. Top seed Brett Warburton of Lichfield Archers was third.

Stages one and two winner Alyssia Troman-Ansell of Lichfield Archers finished in style, beating Lizzie Warner of Kirby Muxloe in the recurve women’s final. Cleadon’s Kate Dunnighan took bronze.
