Sussex Top in New Field Inter-Counties

November 16th, 2017

KentIC2017WebHeader580pxlKent Archery Association arranged the first-ever Southern Counties Inter-Counties Field Event held on 15th October. Several of the Counties invited decided not to take part this year because some of their best archers had been invited to a Selection Shoot on the same day – as indeed were ours. But Sussex has some strength in depth so we were able to field a Field Team (with a little help from our friends – see the Team Captain’s report below).

Team Captain Nick Lea’s Report….
I’m very pleased to announce that Sussex were victorious at the Kent field inter-county shoot on Sunday!
We claimed 1st, 2nd and 4th places in what was the first inter-county field tournament in the UK.  Chris Horan and Bob Beany are hoping to make this pilot tournament a regular event and act as template for other counties to follow suit. Kent had extended an invitation to ourselves, Surrey and Essex.  The fact that Surrey and Essex felt they had to withdraw due to lack of archers highlights the difficulties we were all facing.
