PHOENIX Archers have made a bright start to the new year.

There was a great turn-out of members from the Weeley-based club for the Clacton Archers competition, on Sunday.

They all did exceptionally well, shooting a Portsmouth round.

Once again, Phoenix archers came away with another selection of medals.

Jason Pretlove shot compound and achieved gold.

Chris Winnings also shot compound and came away with a silver.

The ladies also did well.

Emma Winnings struck gold in the bare bow and Julie Myddleton silver.
