With thanks to Dave Macdermid. 

Turriff’s Alasdair Hamilton finished a creditable ninth out of thirty-three competitors at the Stoke Mandeville International Invitation 70m archery event.

Broch Archery Club member Alasdair was the second placed British competitor in the competition, which was won by Canada’s Kevin Evans.

Alasdair narrowly missed being selected for a place in the Great Britain archery squad for the London 2012 Paralympics later in the year, being pipped in the men’s compound by a single position.
