Parkfield Archers were aiming for gold in the Southern Counties Junior Archery Championships, held in Essex last week.

And Sally Watson, pictured, hit the target to win her age group and the Southern Counties Junior Longbow title.

There was more success for Sally when, for the second consecutive year, she won the Silver Arrow award for the highest longbow score in all age groups.

Shooting 12 dozen arrows over three distances, Sally's brother Ken began his challenge well but struggled in the middle distances and finished outside the medals.

The championship is open to all junior archers from 10 counties, including Cambridgeshire.
