Teenagers Blain Nicholson and Thomas Mowforth who shoot for Archers Of East Riding have been chosen to develop their skills at the new Archery GB regional performance academy at Bishop Burton College.

The academies represent a change in the sport in terms of how young archery talent is being developed in the country and they will also promote coaching in the region.

Nicholson and Mowforth will attend the performance centre for one weekend each month and will be taught by new performance coach Songi Woo, who has worked with the Korean archery team.
