Lauren B selected for England!

Following closely from her success at the County Championships last weekend, Lauren Bann – one of our junior shooting stars and ArcheryGB academician – has just been selected to shoot for England in the Home Nations match taking place alongside the Junior Nationals at Lilleshall on 6/7th July.

Following the momentous phone call, Lauren’s mum says:

After some squeals of delight (from us all), reality has hit, she only picked up her ACCs on wednesday and had her limbs wound to 26lb, so no sight marks etc…!

The Bann family will no doubt be rushing to Runwell to get everything dialled in ASAP!

Congratulations to Lolly (and long-suffering family!) for your selection to the England team: we’re so proud of all your achievements and eagerly await your future successes!
