This press cutting is from the Chronicle and Echo on 25th June 1949. It features Sid Cato and Peter Isaac prior to the official formation of NAC.The date is confirmed both by the date on the newspaper and the cricket match commentary on the rear. It is noted that Sid is using a bow in the shot, but from what we are told he had never shot before starting the club.
On the right is the rear side of the press cutting – now sadly in a bad state. The Chronicle and Echo originally had two to three editions a day, and you won’t find this report in the local collection at Northampton library as it was not in the edition filmed for the archive.
From 23rd March to 24th March 2012 Northampton Archery Club held a 24hour Shootathon to raise money for Sports Relief. The event was reported on in the Archery UK magazine and the article can be found on page 12.
