I added this to another thread started by gaperon but it must have got lost I think, so I am putting it separately, hope that doesn't confuse. Many thanks anyone.

25 across must be anna but don't understand why ana is a collection...could anyone enlighten me?

otherwise I am afraid I need help with he last one, 2 down, 'What key sportsman could use for a change?' (6,4)

looks like archer something but doesn't make sense to me....thanks very much anybody!
