Gordano Valley Archers take honours at Gloucestershire Junior Championships 2017

On Saturday 9th September 2017 Gloucestershire Archery Society held their annual County and Open Junior Championships.

This is a UK Record Status using Western Rounds (New Western, Long Western, Western, Short Western, Junior Western, Short Junior Western).

The event was held at Deer Park Archers Ground, Shurdington Road, Cheltenham, Post Code GL51 4UD.

Gordano Valley Archers were proud to announce that 3 of their elite juniors, Marco Costanza, Sophia Boulton and Josh Smith took part in the tournament and were very successful. Full results can be seen if you follow the link:


This success followed on from their recent participation in the Junior National Outdoor Championship held in Lilleshall in July and the Junior Youth Festival in August 2017.

All three archers are currently involved in the ArcheryGB talent pathway with Marco having been recently offered (and accepted) into the Performance Academy for 2017/18. As long standing members of GVA we are all naturally very proud of our juniors and wish them all the success for the future.
