Team Supreme

May 23rd, 2022

Sussex on Top at Vigo 3-way inter-County

The Team Develoment effort that started last year paid off when the Sussex Archery Team took on two Matches in quick succession – versus Hampshire on 8th May, and versus Kent and Hertfordshire on 22nd May. Hampshire won on the 8th, but two weeks later the Team dropped into its stride and came out on top at Vigo Village in Kent, ahead of both opposing teams.

Stars of the Vigo match were the Juniors who really excelled, but that’s not to diminish the Seniors who put in great performances and have definitely grown in stature over the last two months. 29 Sussex Archers took part in the two matches, of which 16 were in both. The team managers are starting to see the benefits of increasing the size of the squad pool – and there’s still plenty of room for more in the pool in several bowstyles and age/gender groups.
