Aalin GB Young Archer of the Year

Manx competitor Aalin George has been named as Young Archer of the Year by Archery GB.

The news was announced at the National Senior and Junior Championships at the Telford International Centre held over the weekend.

The Isle of Man contenders also showed good form in the tournament.

Aalin was pipped at the post in the Under-16 Final by just one point losing to fellow Great Britain shooter Daisy Clarke but securing a silver medal.

Aalins's sisters also shone - Kirsten George also won silver in her age bracket and Charlotte George came 7th.

Sarah Rigby also produced some high class results from a total field of nearly 400 archers at the competition.

She defeated both the reigning Indoor Champion and an World Outdoor Championship contender on her way to the semi-finals.

Unfortunately, she lost by one set against professional Lucy Holderness but won the bronze medal match which came down to a one arrow shoot off.

Sarah held her to take the honours with a confident shot into the ten ring on the target.
