Leamington archer Naomi Folkard claimed women’s recurve gold at the Archery GB National Series Final at Nottingham’s Wollaton Park on Saturday.

Folkard defeated Bryony Pitman in straight sets after a series of head-to-head matches whittled the original 16 archers down to two.

Talking about the final, she said: “I was quite nervous. Definitely more nervous than I was the other two matches, but I just made sure I kept pulling strong, and pushing strong. It’s my first National Series win since Leamington in 2010, so I’m really happy.”
