The highest placing in the Junior Championships was a Gold Medal for Bryony Pitman (under 18 group) with the highest score by a Lady Recurver.  And all three Sussex Compound Gents achieved Bronze Medals in their Age Groups – they are Jamie Cole (under 18),  Kai Thomas-Pause (under 16) and Nathan Thomas (under 14).
Marc Charlesworth was placed 10th in the under 16 Recurve Class, Chris Cooper was 13th in the under 18 Recurves, and Jodie Green 15th in the under 16 Ladies Recurve class.
Amelia Harper and Georgina Stewart also shot, but didn’t compete for places as they are now over 18.

In the Junior Home International and Inter-Regional events, Jamie Cole (pictured above) was in the Home-International-winning England Junior Team, and Bryony Pitman took her place in the victorious  Southern Counties squad.
2014JNICSaturdayPMJuniorsIn the Senior Championships, the undoubted highlight was the Head to Head for the Gold Medal between 3-time Olympian Larry Godfrey and Sussex Archer Gerry Deak, who’s having a great year. Goliath won on this occasion, but Gerry went down fighting with a very creditable Silver Medal, having also beaten the Bronze Medallist on the way.
Other notable Head-to-Head Placings were Bryony Pitman with 6th Place, and Petra Ginman and Gavin Sutherland both 9th equal.

Great International Performances

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014

BPitmanGSutherlandInternational2014bTwo Sussex Stars have made their marks on an International Stage.

Bryony Pitman was one of two UK archers representing Great Britain at the Youth Olympics in Nanjing, China.  She qualified with a good score, but went out in her first match.  She was then teamed with Belarusian Aliaksei Dubrova in the mixed team competition, finishing in joint 9th place.

and Gavin Sutherland has represented Zimbabwe at the All-Africa Championships held in Luxor, Egypt, taking second place in the Ranking Round and going on win the Silver for his country, and then winning Gold in the African Open International Tournament.

Two brilliant performances from young archers on an upward trajectory.

Sussex Field Archers represent GB

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014


Three Sussex Field Archers have represented Great Britain during August and September.

Jamie Cole was selected to shoot Compound in the World Championships at Zagreb, Croatia. He successfully came through the Qualification Round, but did not progress beyond the Elimination Round, ending in 15th Place.

Michaela Lake was selected to represent GB in the European 3-D Championships at Tallin, Estonia,  shooting Instinctive, following a very successful Summer when she became both English and Irish Champion. A near-novice to 3-D she nevertheless ended in 11th place in Europe, just ten points below the cut.

Gary Cole was also selected for  the European 3-D Championships shooting Compound Unlimited, and after the 2-day Qualification rounds was very well placed at 5th. But in the 12-arrow elimination round very poor light at three of the targets meant he was unable to see the target well enough in the sight scope he  was using and ended up with nine points less that he needed to make the cut for the finals, enough to drop to 15th place.

Not only is Sussex proud because these archers were selected, they all also made it to the Elimination Rounds, and were only points away from the next round.
