Great E Mail From 720 Competitor

E mail thread from a competitor at the recent 720 at AOER. A great credit to our club

Dear David, (Reaney)

I hope you are well and not too tired from the weekends shoot.

Just a wee note to thank you all so very much for being so amazingly wonderful to me this weekend! I cannot thank you all enough!

Could you pass my appreciation on the Mike, Aaron and the elderly gent [beard] who helped me with my arrow collecting and support! They were absolutely brilliant!! You’ve got a fantastic club and I can see it growing in the future because of all of your amazing nature!

I am so sorry I could not stay until the end and did pass my apologies on through Mike. I have a five hour journey home and work the next day so needed to get off as early as possible.

Thank you again for a fab day and will hopefully see you all again in the future.

All the very best.

Kindest Regards

Sunday 2nd August 2015, Archers of East Riding hit the road again to take part in the Annual East Riding Invitation Competition hosted by Burton Constable Company of Bowmen. With a good turn out from both juniors and seniors and quite favourable weather, hopes of a good trophy haul were high.

Shooting an American round comprising of 2.5 dozen arrows each at 60, 50 and 40 yards the seniors certainly performed well, especially David Reaney with quadruple success. Not to be out done the juniors performed equally as well shooting Western rounds according to age, with Niamh Titchener achieving a County Record score.

Junior National Outdoor Archery Championships 2015

Sophie Joyce, Niamh Titchener and Ed Wallace all of Archers of East Riding Juniors travelled to Lilleshall last weekend to compete in the Junior National Outdoor Championships hosted by Archery GB.

The weather might have interrupted proceedings especially on the Sunday with thunder storms and lightening but it could not affect the high quality of the shooting.

With 70 targets and over 250 Archers this was by far the biggest tournament our junior Archers had taken part in. Shooting Fita rounds on Saturday and Bristol rounds on the Sunday with distances of 60 metres for Sophie and Ed and 30 metres for Niamh, distance dependent on age. All performed very well attaining creditable scores and finishing positions against some very experienced Archers from all over the country.

Our junior archers will be submitting their scores taken from Fita or Bristol tournaments this year with the hope of being selected to represent Yorkshire in the upcoming Five Counties Tournament to be hosted by Archers of East Riding in October, their performance at Lilleshall will certainly help toward that goal.

Fantastic E Mail From Burton Constable Shoot

E mail Received Regarding AOER Juniors Supporting a Fellow Archer at the Recent Burton Constable Shoot


A great credit to the club and to the Juniors concerned well done


Dear Sophie and Ben,

Just wanted to say a big thank you to you both today for the support you gave to T. Jay.  I am sure it was very difficult for him to do this competition today and was made very pleasant for him by two young adults just being nice!  His Mum cannot sing your praises enough.  Many thanks.

Dave and Carole,

What fantastic juniors you have at your club, you must be very proud of them and all you are achieving with the club.

Kind regards,



Hi Jon,

Sophie and Ben made a young man with difficulties enjoy his day, what more can you say!  His Mum could not say enough about them both.  An absolute credit to yourself and Sophie.

The young unfortunately always seem to get criticism because they are young.  Some do not take the time to understand, as they prefer to Judge too quickly.

All of the AoER Juniors, I have found to be an absolute pleasure to be around and that is testament to their parents and also to the club as well I am sure.

Be good to see you soon,




Dave / Karen

Just a quick personal note.

Many thanks for your kind words regarding Sophie and Ben. It really is a breath of fresh air to receive compliments instead of criticism these days.

I am so proud that our Juniors could make such an impact.

Again many thanks and look forward to seeing you soon.




Archers of East Riding On Target at the Yorkshire Championships

On the weekend of 6th and 7th June our Archers travelled to Wetherby to take part in the Yorkshire Archery Association Annual County Championships and Open Meeting 2015.

Due to high winds and safety concerns the Saturday, World Archery Fita rounds had to be cancelled after only three ends, leaving the Archers to pack away and hope for better conditions on the Sunday.

Happily, Sunday did improve, it actually started on a high for the Archers of East Riding with our very own Trevor Astley being presented with the Yorkshire Sword in recognition of his organisation of the Long Bow Tournament on behalf of the Yorkshire Committee, a thankless task which Trevor has carried out successfully for the last few years and has already volunteered his services for 2015.

After Trevor’s presentation and the morning briefing the shooting began. Although the conditions were still challenging with a stiff changeable wind, shooting did commence. The juniors were shooting Bristol rounds dependent on age with distances from 40 to 60 yards and the seniors shooting a York round comprising of 100, 80 and 60 yards.

After a long day of competitive and challenging shooting it was time for the presentations; Archers of East Riding athletes enjoying success in the following categories:


Champion  U.14 Girl Recurve shooting a Bristol 4 round             Jessica Hall

Champion  U.12 Boy Recurve shooting a Bristol 4 round             Daniel Hall

2nd U.12 Girl Recurve shooting a Bristol 5 round                           Niamh Tichener

2nd U.18 Girl Recurve shooting a Bristol 2 round                           Sophie Joyce

Junior Recurve Team Yorkshire Champions

Jessica Hall, Daniel Hall, Niamh Tichener and Sophie Joyce


Champion Lady Longbow shooting a Hereford round                  Penny Mowforth

Champion Gent Recurve shooting a York round                           Blain Nicholson

Highest 3rd Class recurve shooting a York round                           Stuart Hall

Senior Recurve Team Yorkshire Champions

Blain Nicholson, Stuart Hall, Jon Joyce and Tom Mowforth

Archers of East Riding can now boast 9 current Yorkshire Champions within their ranks from both Target and Clout competitions this year. The most pleasing factor is the success of our Juniors, most of which have only been shooting for two years or less, it just goes to show what can be achieved in a relatively short time with a little dedication and commitment, even for our ageing Seniors !
