LYG CMO Team

Great Performance in the Jubilee Trophy

Ruby, Ramona, Kate and Ethan represented Croydon in this year's London Youth Games held at Crystal Palace on Saturday 7th July.

Despite the searing heat, our juniors put in a scorching performance, finishing in 10th place which is three places up on last year.

Well done to the team and our thanks to Debbie and Neil Mason for all of their hard work organising the Junior Development Programme.

Heat warning

Be Prepared in the Summer Sun

Whilst the weather continues to remain beautifully sunny and hot, please make sure you come to the field with plenty of water and slap on the sun cream.

A big floppy hat is also a good idea, however ridiculous it may look - remember, you don't have to look cool to stay cool.

If you feel unwell, have a drink and sit in the shade and alert one of our first-aiders.

Steve Harris Fox Independent 2018

Steven Harris Superb Solo Effort

Well done to Steven who travelled to Fox Archers on Sunday 1st July to compete in their Independence Day event, shooting an American (round, not person) and coming away with the Men's Barebow trophy with a score of 535.

A good tournament with a cracking lunch and great company by all accounts...congratulations again Steven. So that's what a real cup looks like...

Home Run!

Congratulations again to Yulia Larkins and Antony Wood shooting recurve and Andre Labuschagne and Eric Chan shooting compound for their win against Wallingford Castle Archers at home on Saturday 23rd June.

We finished 13-8 winners and progress to the Quarter Finals in July.  Don't forget to submit those 50m scores to Antony if you'd like to join the squad.

Pushing for the Top Spot

Over the last few weekends, our two eilte archers have been touring the country to rack up those ranking points with a view to seeing how far they can go at National and International level.

Yulia Larkins and Antony Wood have been getting better and better this season, with performances that have been impressive.

CMO Archers Queue for Medals in Kew

On Sunday 15th April, CMO sent a contingent of 20 archers and supporters to the Royal Richmond Pagoda Shoot 2018, held next to Kew Gardens in the shadow of the great tower.

This event is normally well-attended by CMO but this year was the first trial of a group event booking and the turnout was even higher. Our archers represented the club across all disciplines, shooting Albion and Windsor rounds but nobody was quite prepared for the medals haul that was to follow.
