New Chairman appointed

The Board of Archery NI is pleased to announce that a new Chairman has been appointed on 8th May 2018.

Mr Marc Scott, formerly of Sport NI, spoke of his great pleasure to take on the role of Chair of Archery NI. “While archery in NI has seen some challenges over the last few years, with the commitment and dedication which is evident in the volunteer workforce, both in the clubs and Archery NI Board, the clear direction and support being provided by Archery GB and the potential in the athlete pool, this is an exciting time to be given the opportunity and to be privileged to lead the organisation.

In conjunction with strong governance foundations, engagement with members is key to the success of Archery NI and I look forward to meeting as many members from all aspects of the sport in the near future, and working with the archery family to ensure a successful and sustainable future for the sport in the region.”

The Board very much looks forward to working under Marc’s leadership.


Unfortunately, the Board also has to report that two other Directors have recently resigned.

John Kane, Performance Director for just a short period, has had a job promotion with associated increased responsibilities which he feels does not allow him sufficient time for Archery NI work. He continues to be available as one of our Regional Judges.

Ian McAuley, Membership Director, is also experiencing increased work pressures and has decided to step down after some twenty months on the board, including a difficult first year of the new organisation.

The Board would like to express many thanks to both John and Ian and wishes them well in their work endeavours.

This means there are now two vacancies for member directors and applications are invited for anyone interested and wanting to contribute to the running, development and future of archery in N. Ireland.

Job specifications can be found below and expressions of interest should be sent to
