For the third year running, St. Sebastian Archers top the tables in both the DCAA and Selby leagues.

In the Derbyshire Indoor Portsmouth leagues winning both the league and the handicap league. We also came out top in the Derbyshire outdoor Frostbite league and came a very close runner up in the Frostbite handical league. 

In the Selby League we did equally as well. Team A and team B winning their respective divisions of the indoor Portsmouth leagues and in the Frostbite Leagues, team A won division one while team B came an admirable fourth.

Remarkably we won six out of the eight leagues/divisions we entered. Thanks to everyone who submitted scores and well done on the results.


A big well done to our latest beginners. All improving their technique and having great fun in the spring sunshine. Also a warm welcome to the five new members who joined immediately after the course and we're sure more to join soon. Looking forward to seeing them all at the field soon.


Our latest group of tasters enjoyed a couple of hours of archery in the April sunshine. Here's hoping we see them again at the field.


Well done to our archers at this last weekend's DCAA indoor Portsmouth competition.

3rd Sean Copcutt, 4th Steve Huff, 5th Jon Oldroyd and 10th Paul Briggs. Also in the Double Portsmouth Steve Huff came 2nd

A great result for all our competing members and the club.

Not forgetting a big thanks to Derwent Bowmen for again organising a great event.


A brilliant turnout for St. Sebastians belated Christmas shoot. The shoot included medals, raffle and a charity collection for one of our members who is not too well at the moment with cancer. The night raised £115 which is going to St. Luke's Hospice.

Sean Copcutt had a FAB night, getting first in the shoot and club Bray 2 record, third in the handicap and then goes and draws first price in the raffle..........cries of FIX! from around the hall.

Well done Sean.

Not forgetting the damaged arrow for Jon Oldroyd......OOPS!


St. Sebastian Archers make a clean sweep!!!


Our latest beginners dodged the rain and completed our Autumn beginners' course. All did really well and developed their techniques and skills. Here's hoping the course starts them on their archery journey and we look forward to seeing them at the field.


A sunny September Sunday saw St. Sebastian Archers hold their Autumn Taster. Twelve tasters had a couple of hours of archery fun and quite a few "caught the bug" and signed up for the next beginners' course.


A big well done to our archers at the recent LNER archery club 50/50 tournament. Steve Huff winning the gents recurve and Simone Reuter getting runner up in the ladies recurve.

Not forgetting LNER archery club for hosting a great event.


Congratulations to our latest group of beginners who dodged the showers, showing some great technique and all successfully completed their beginners' course. We're looking forward to seeing them in the future at the field.

Not to forget to give a big shout out to the members helping with it all and making it possible.


St. Sebastian Archers held their summer taster session and 14 hardy souls withstood the hot summer sun and had two hours of fun at the range. Everyone did really well and enjoyed the afternoon with smiles all round. Many of them have now enrolled for our beginners' course at the end of the month. We look forward to seeing them again soon. Also a big thanks to the members that made it all possible.


The Platinum Jubilee saw St. Sebastian Archers play host to our neighbouring club, Bowmen of Chesterfield, for a jubilee fun shoot. Archers, both experienced and novices, had a great afternoon in the June sunshine and enjoyed the chance to meet other archers and also have some great food. For the novice archers, it was also a chance to experience the tournament atmosphere.


Well done to our latest group of beginners, improving their technique, trying some longbow shooting and finishing off with balloon bursting fun. the end of the day gave us eleven new members. we look forward to seeing them all at the field.

Many thanks to coaches and members that made it all possible.


St. Sebastians keep on winning.

We've only gone and done it again and won both Derbyshire County and their Selby postal Frostbite leagues. In both competitions finishing undefeated. A big well done to all our members who entered their scores............KEEP IT UP BOYS AND GIRLS!


It was great to see such a full field taking part in St. Sebastian's spring taster session. All had a fun afternoon in the April sunshine and all enjoyed their introduction to archery.
