THE Hereford Archery Association have honoured two of their stalwart members.

The Bathgate Access League, which is in its second season, has included junior and senior leagues with trophies named after Gillian Ison and David Cochrane.

Gillian, who has been a coach and club secretary at Bromyard Bowmen, played a major part in setting up the club and laying the foundations of the county association with her late husband Aubrey, who died in 2005.

David, still active as a country committee member and competitive archer, has stepped down from being a regional judge after officiating at tournaments featuring many of the country’s top archers. Club honours were shared between Bromyard Bowmen and Lugg Valley with the Bromyard club the first winners of the Gillian Ison Junior Champions Cup and Lugg Valley taking the David Cochrane Senior Champions Cup.

Lugg Valley claimed the Bathgate Awards league trophy, combining senior and junior awards and points, for the second year running.
