2010 SCAS Junior Inter-Counties Championships

Tuesday, August 17th, 2010

A splendid performance by the Sussex Junior team on Sunday, 15th August resulted in the Recurve team finishing second to Essex by the narrow margin of 57 points, while the Compound team successfully defended the title it won last year.

Champions! Team Manager Terry White with the Sussex Junior Compound team of Daniel Allen, Stevie Kent, Jamie Cole and Pip Tucknott.

Congratulations to the members of both teams.  It was quite a performance in difficult conditions and against tough opposition.

While everyone played their part in a memorable day for Sussex archery, including compound team reserve Peter Moore, Tom Winkworth’s personal best of 1114 in the Bristol II Recurve was a stand-out achievement and just reward for much dedicated effort this year.

The same can be said for all three members of the Compound team. Daniel Allen showed remarkable composure in shooting a personal best for third place in the Bristol I; Jamie Cole determinedly overcame a stomach upset to put together another exceptional score that proved to be the best by a boy in the Bristol III; and Pip Tucknott, realising a long-held ambition to represent Sussex at the Inter-Counties, put in a great effort to anchor the team to victory with 1260 in the Bristol II.  Congratulations again, lads; you are quite a team.

Sussex took second place in the Recurve Championships, one place higher than last year, and they look justifiably pleased with their efforts: Bryony Pitman, Hayley Foord, Will Martin, Tom Winkworth and Abigail Goacher

Much credit must also go to the team manager, Terry White, who was ably assisted by his wife Pam. Terry’s style of team management doesn’t involve any of the hype or fuss that others have brought to the post in the recent past; instead a combination of sensible team selection, plenty of encouragement when needed and a genuine skill in getting the kids to enjoy their day proved to be a winning formula. Well done, Terry!
