Family Traditions

The Archers

A Story of Sporting Families

Over the years the club has seen individual archers come and go and some have returned again, but for some it is a real ‘Family Tradition’.

There are in the club at this moment in time 2 families with 3 generations on ‘The Line’.

There is the ‘James’ family: Maureen (1st), Steve (2nd) & Andrea and Jessica (3rd), all of whom are still very active in the archery world, with Jessica representing Archery GB over the past 3 years.

The ‘Cutting’ family: Paul (1st), Barry (2nd), Katie and Daniel (3rd), again the whole family is still shooting on a very regular basis and the youngest member, Katie, has just taken her first club records keeping up with her Dad who has records dating back to 1987.

Not to labour the point about archery being a ‘family’ sport but we do have 4 families that shot together at the club on a very regular basis.

The ‘McQuillin’ family: Grandad Rob, and ‘little Thomas’.

The ‘Coggins’ family; Dad Eric, Mam Alex and Zoe; who also has represented Archery GB over the past 3 years.

The ‘Davidson’ family, Dad Ray, Mam Val and Luke.

The ‘Foster’ family, Dad Mike and daughter Liz.

And finally the ‘Rush’ family, Mam Susan with sons Peter and Michael.

There are also some very happy couples on the line, Gloria & Brian Capeling, Grant & Linda Bulman, Ian Norwood & Ann Conifey, Mike & Sheila Carney and last but not least Bill & Ann Lee, proving that Archery is a family sport for all ages and abilities.
