The committee for 2020-21.

Callum Henfrey, President

Hi, I’m Callum and I am both the OUCofA President and the Men’s Captain for 2020-21. I joined the club as a novice at the start of my undergraduate degree back in 2014, and have been around ever since. These days I am a DPhil student in Molecular Cell Biology, so you can find me shooting here all year round. If you have any questions about the club, particularly with regards to membership, then you can contact me at

Lauren Overend, Treasurer

Hey! I’m Lauren and I am the OUCofA Treasurer/Women’s Captain and welfare contact for 2020-21. I’m a third year DPhil at Oriel studying Genomic Medicine and Statistics. I joined archery in my first year as a novice in an attempt to become Merida (Brave). When I am not in the lab you can usually find me dancing to ridiculous 80’s music on the shooting line (although less so in the morning) and trying to balance the accounts.
Happy to chat about archery, science and life in general –

Alex Goldsack, Secretary

The FitnessGram™ Pacer Test is a multistage aerobic capacity test that progressively gets more difficult as it continues. The 20 meter pacer test will begin in 30 seconds. Line up at the start. The running speed starts slowly, but gets faster each minute after you hear this signal. [beep] A single lap should be completed each time you hear this sound. [ding] Remember to run in a straight line, and run as long as possible. The second time you fail to complete a lap before the sound, your test is over. The test will begin on the word start. On your mark, get ready, start.

Sydney Stewart Rose, Social Secretary

Hey all, I’m Sydney and I’m a researcher at the Pitt Rivers Museum reading for a dphil in archaeology. I’m one of the social secretaries for OUCofA so you can contact me about our social events. I also am one of the only people in the club who shoots barebow!

Valentin Darre, Social Secretary

Hello! I'm Valentin one of the social secretary dynamic duo! I'm doing a DPhil in Archaeology and have been shooting for about a year. Hoping to plan some good socials for you all!.

Yang Pei, Equipment Officer

Hi this is Yang and I am one of the equipment officers this year. Together we will be responsible for maintaining equipment, and most importantly, buying new goodies for the club. I can be spotted shooting a flashy red bow and occasionally in the "wrong" stash. Otherwise, with whatever spare time there is, I also happen to be doing a DPhil in Medical Sciences.

Zoe Reed, Equipment Officer

Hey, I'm Zoe - a fresher medic at John's (I guess when you're reading this I'll be a second year - scary), so it's safe to say I'm hopefully going to be around for a while. I'm one of the equipment officers along with Yang, so any questions about using or borrowing equipment from the club, we're your guys! Despite only joining the club in 2019, I've just gone into my 10th year of shooting, so if you ever want a chat, whether archery related or not, just pop me a message or find me at a session!

Micah Lee, Tournaments Officer

I’m a third year at Jesus reading for a DPhil in biochemistry. Being a disillusioned adult, I spend most of my time shooting either arrows or x-rays at certain things. At other times I can be found in Blackwell’s, Scriptum, or existential dread of graduate job prospects. Controversial preferences include The Aeneid over The Odyssey, black truffle over white truffle, Haydn over Bach.

Eléonore Cossade, Coaching Officer

Hi, I'm Eléonore and I'm responsible for organising your beginners' course and setting up extra coaching events for our novice and experienced squads. I studied Applied Linguistics at Worcester a few years ago and I am now working for the university.

Paul Vanetti, IT Officer

Hi, I'm Paul and I've been the IT Officer for the club the last couple of years. I shot with OUCofA until I finished up my DPhil last year, and I'm now working and living in London. So hopefully I'll be seeing you at some competitions and socials this year!
