Brief History of the club

Corus (Deeside) Archery Club has been in Shotton for over 50 years.

We have gone by several names during that time including John Summers and British Steel Archers.

We have been on the current grounds at Rowley’s Drive since it was used as British Steel’s Sports and Social Club, when the company helped sustain the club whilst we didn’t charge membership fees to British Steel employees.

When British Steel was sold to Corus, we became Corus (Deeside). Since then Corus has cut ties with the club but we retain the name until we see the need to change it (and we find a fitting replacement).

We have always supported our archers, some of whom have gone on to tournament winning careers shooting for county and for Wales.
