This coming Saturday, 12th May, the Junior Club is travelling to New Century Bowmen at Macclesfield for their annual field shoot.
This means there is no junior club sessions on morning at the club.
If any other junior would still like to attend, they should let Margaret know as soon as possible, and they need to have either attended the field training session last Saturday morning or have attended a field shoot at New Century in a previous year.

Thanks to the Hamer Trust the members of the junior club have all been presented with a brand new Gilet, sporting the club logo on the back as well as on the left front side.
The juniors will be encouraged to wear these as part of their uniform when attending any future tournament.
Hamer Trust has had a long relationship with Stalybridge Archery Club and over the years, which has allowed the club to purchase equipment to help both beginners and juniors.
