Newark Castle Archers shooter makes Nottinghamshire team
Mandie Elson has been selected to shoot for Nottinghamshire.
The Newark Castle Archers chairman will make her county debut on September 1 in Leicestershire at a Hereford round at Bowmen, of Glen Archery Club.
“My reaction was of pure excitement when I received notification,” said Elson.
“In terms of my archery, it means that I have and will continue to improve within my category.
“The best part is I only went up to shooting big distances in April.
“I have competed in five long distance shoots with very little practice as we don’t have the luxury of our own ground, which for me makes this even more impressive.”
Elson said she will practise at Sherwood Archers, who are based in Southwell.
