Kirby Muxloe's James Passingham produced a fantastic performance to make it through to the final of the men's compound competition at Hawks Archers Head-to-Head, in Bedfordshire.
It was a major achievement for the 15-year-old in a tournament that attracted many of the top archers in the country.
A five-dozen round produced a ranking order, and the top archers in the rankings then shot head to head in a knock-out tournament.
Passingham claimed a narrow victory over James Mason of Wellingborough before coming up against, and beating, Great Britain archer Chris Castell.
Another slender win, coming down to a one-arrow shoot-off over GB Junior Tom Taylor, took the Kirby youngster into the final against top seed and GB international Liam Grimwood.
Passingham handled the pressure well, taking two points off his illustrious opponent before losing 6-2.
