THERE were two sections for physically disabled archers at the 2012 Fife Archery Championships, the second event in the annual sports festival organised by Disability Sport Fife.

Winner of the men’s open was Brad Stewart from Ladybank, a relative newcomer to the sport.

His success followed a very impressive first appearance at the national championships held at Cluny Clays in 2011.

In the junior section, Fraser Wilson from Cupar retained the Fife junior title and improved on his 2011 score by eight points.

Runner-up was Steven McCormack (Kirkcaldy), appearing in his first Fife championships.


Two divisions for archers with a learning disability were held, and in Division One Gary Lindsay (Robert Gough Centre, Leven) retained the title he won in 2010 and 2011.

Michael Wilkie and Wullie Christie (Robert Gough Centre) shared second place, and Craig Houston (Robert Gough Centre) was placed third.

In the Division Two section for archers with a learning disability, Andrea Spry (Robert Gough Centre) won the title for the first time with a score of 64 points, 21 ahead of the second place archer Paul Arthur (West Fife Community Support Services).

Tanis Murphy (Robert Gough Centre) took third place with a score of 41 points.
