© Alsager Company of Archers 2020
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.
