Essex triumphs over Sussex

Monday, June 29th, 2009

Last Sunday’s county match against Essex ended in a convincing win for the visitors in both senior and junior matches, due largely to below par performances by the County’s recurve archers.  The team and individual scores can be downloaded in pdf format using the links below:

In stark contrast to the Hampshire match in April, the shoot was blessed with near-perfect conditions for archery throughout most of the day with not a single fleece and barely a beanie in sight.

Congratulations to the Essex team and thanks to the judges, Keith and Gwen Mills.

Thanks also to Crawley AC who hosted the match at their new ground.

The senior team won by 18,197 to Hampshire’s 18,074, while the junior team score of 10,162 was just enough to beat Hampshire’s 9,966.  Individual scores and a full breakdown of the team results can be viewed using the following links:

Congratulations to everyone who contributed to Sussex’s second consecutive victory against our neighbours on a bitterly cold day,as shown by the number of fleeces and beanies on view in the team photograph.

Thanks to the judges, Keith and Gwen Mills, for braving the weather.  Thanks also to the small team, led by Andrew Holdsworth, who marked up the field for the shoot and acted as field crew on the day.
