Alsager Company of Archers
© Alsager Company of Archers 2021
Alsager Company of Archers is an Archery Club, with a current membership of around 75 members, is located on the outskirts of the South Cheshire town of Alsager that borders with Staffordshire. The Club encourages the bow disciplines of Recurve (as used in the Olympics), Compound, traditional Longbow and the barebow for all the family in a friendly, but competitive environment. We continue to enjoy a reputation within the County of Cheshire for producing top class Archers, both at Senior and Junior level, which have not only gone on to represent the County, but have represented the region and Great Britain at International Level in the past. Some names who have represented Great Britain include Sylvia Harris, Matthew Gray, Andrew Lewis and Mike Wheeler. Our current star is Thomas Nairn, who early in May 2016, shot for Great Britain in the European Youth Cup that was staged in Hungary. Thomas won the Silver medal in the Mixed Recurve Cadet Team. His aim (no pun intended) is to be selected for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. The aim of this website is to provide easily accessible information about the club and the fascinating sport of Archery.
