JOHN Murphy retained the South Bucks Archers indoor club title at the annual championship.

Shooting a Reverse Portsmouth round, 15 archers shot 60 arrows apiece in five pools with a winner from each pool going through to an eliminate round.

The eliminator round saw Recurve archers Murphy, Charis Parry, Saffiya Sheik and Russell Hughes pitted in the knockout stages along with barebow archer Elizabeth Wethered.

Wethered was the first to be knocked out, followed by Sheikh, with Hughes finishing in third place.

The final round saw defending champion Murphy narrowly beat Parry to retain the South Bucks Archers indoor champion title.

The competition marks the end of the indoor season for the club with outdoor shooting beginning this week.

South Bucks Archers is running a series of archery taster sessions on Sunday 19th May. For more details visit or email
