2023 Island Games Team Announcement

The Isle of Man Archery Club is pleased to announce the Squad for the Island Games due to be held in Guernsey from the 8th to the 14th July 2023. The squad will consist of teams in each of the two disciplines, together with a Team Manager and an Assistant Team Manager.

There will be a good range of archers including a newcomer to the Island Games providing a mix of both youth and experience.

The last time Archery was part of the Island Games was in Gotland in 2017. Archery was not a chosen sport for the Gibraltar Games in 2019 and then Covid meant the Guernsey Games which were due to be held in 2021 were postponed to 2023.

The Recurve Team consists of lady archer, Barbara Harris who made first appearance at the Gotland games. She will be accompanied by Danny Cowin, Alex Allen-Snell and newcomer to the Games, James Hill, who now has a chance to compete at International level.

The Compound Team is made up of experienced archers Joy Gough, Aalin George, Dave Moore, Ethan Moore and Rhys Moore.

The teams will be under the experienced and watchful eye of Alison Cowin who has been the Archery Team Manager since Aland Island Games in 2009. Alison will be assisted by former Games competitor Peter Mumford who will act as Assistant Team Manager and Coach to the teams.
