New National Ladies WA 1440 Record by Sussex Archer

2014SussexHantsMatchThe Sussex Seniors won three out of the four Bowstyles – but Hampshire won the Match on Aggregate because Sussex were short on Juniors

The county team met up at the Southampton ground ready for our annual match against Hampshire. Some of us had not been there before, so we managed to lose one member, but luckily he did turn up right on the dot, thanks to the Hampshire team giving instructions over a mobile phone!
The day was very pleasant; good company, good scores and good weather – with a nice ground thrown in – what more could you want!!!

We congratulate Hampshire on their overall win. Sussex won three of the senior sections, and so it was very close.
The Junior teams formed part of the overall result;  unfortunately we were unable to field complete teams, and so lost several of their sections.
This was a Record Shoot, and Marilyn Dewar has claimed a National Record for her score of 630 – many congratulations.
Sussex would like to thank all archers, both seniors and juniors for supporting the county at the first match of the season.

Doreen Cannon, senior team manager.
