Archer Murray on the mend

Border Bowmen archer Michael Murray has won both the Bannockburn Bowmen Single and Double Portsmouth, with a combined score of 1133, held at Tullibody.

This result is even more impressive because in November 2012, he tore a muscle in his shoulder, which nearly ended his participation in archery, while training with the Scottish development squad.

After months of rehabilitation, he then had to rebuild from a beginner’s level, during which time he was made redundant twice. Although Michael is not yet back to his previous form, he is well on the way.
