County Match versus Hants 5th May 2013

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

The traditional season-opening match against Hampshire took place at the Hazelwick Ground in Crawley on Sunday in pleasant weather conditions (the start of a trend, hopesĀ  Team Manager Doreen Cannon), and thanks to the Ground Crew, the Refreshment Providers, and to equipment acquired and serviced over the winter, the shoot ran smoothly.
The result was a win by Hampshire, but they didn’t have it all their own way by any means, the honours were pretty well shared, but they racked up more points thanks to some brilliant barebow Juniors, and in spite of a big win by our Recurve Juniors, it was their Barebows (senior as well as junior) and their Junior Compounds who carried the honours away.
The final result also included 1100 points from their Junior Longbows, with Sussex being unable to field any Junior Longbow archers. Looking forward to the Inter-Counties in September, it’s highly likely that Junior Longbows will be included. Sooo… if any Sussex Clubs out there have any, please encourage them and start them on the path towards shooting the 12-dozen rounds!!
