AQ Trophy 2017 - Bahja Initiative claim the shield.

Posted on: 16 October 2017

This years Abdullah Quilliam Trophy took place on Sunday 15th October between archers from Inspiring Grace and Bahja Initiative. Inspiring Grace had won the shield for the first time last year, but were unable to defend their crown as they narrowly lost out in an eagerly contested battle. 

The under 13's team from Nelson got off to a terrific start with an 8-1 overall victory with some great shooting in particular from Ali-Raza Gilani. The under 16's team narrowly lost their matches 5-4 and the adults from Accrington proved too strong as they overcame Nelson 6-2 in the decider which had two nailbiting one arrow shoot offs. Congratulations to Bahja and we look forward to resuming rivalries next year!
