2009 Guildford Acorn Shoot

Tuesday, September 1st, 2009

Following on from his success at the County Championships the previous day, Jamie Cole of West Sussex Youth Archers stepped up to claim another winner’s medal at the Guildford AC Acorn shoot on Monday 31st August.

Jamie’s impressive – although maybe that should be amazing – run of scores continued with 1240 in the Junior Gents Compound competition.  This was another outstanding performance by one of the County’s most talented young archers, following hard on the heels of his 1250 in the SCAS Junior Inter Counties Championships on 16th August (in which the Sussex Junior Compound team stormed to a runaway victory.  Full results on the Kent Archery website) and 1248 in the County Championships.

Jamie’s success was mirrored in the Gents Compound by Steve Allen of Horsham, who prevailed in a tight finish with Malcolm Rees from the host club to take first place by six points with a score of 1242.

Gemma Underwood’s score of 1063 proved enough to win the Ladies Recurve by a margin of more than 100 points from Joyce Denny of Spelthorne Archers.

Also among the medals at Guildford after shooting at the County Championships was Pip Tucknott of Ditchling AC, whose score of 1051 secured second place in the Junior Gents Recurve and his second medal of the Bank Holiday weekend.

Full results from the shoot can be found on the Guildford Archery Club website.
