Nelson Archery Club win the Abdullah Quilliam Trophy 2016!
Posted on: 31 August 2016
At the third time of asking, Nelson Archery Club finally got our hands on the Abdullah Quilliam Trophy after overcoming Archers from Bahja Initiative in an often nail biting and tense battle.
In fact the matches were all so closely fought that all the age category matchups ended at 5-4. Our under 12's narrowly lost 5-4, but the under 16s and Adults both won 5-4 to take the overall award and win the Shield. A special mention must go to Isaac Ali who competed in the Under 16 and Adult team taking Gold in both categories. The match of the day was between Reece Broadhurst (Nelson) and Ali Akhtar (Accrington) in the under 16s. Despite Ali scoring a magnificent 67 score out of a maximum of 75 during five rounds of super shooting, Reece held his nerve to score 68 and win the matchup for Nelson.
Below are some images from the day - already looking forward to next year inshaAllah!
