FIVE members of Barnstaple Archery Club took part in their first competition of the year, hosted by Kyrton Archers in Crediton.

A strong performance from Daniel Tompkins saw him take the men's compound trophy with a score of 574, one point ahead Mark Cardy and Tom Kingston, from Honiton's Lacetown Archers, who tied for second place.

Estelle Edwick won the ladies' recurve with a score of 560, beating Zena Barker, of Holsworthy's Loco Bowman, by seven points.

Edwick, Tompkins and Clark Fox, who shot a personal best of 544, combined to win the team award for Barnstaple.

The club will be running archery taster sessions on some Saturdays.
