Sussex Win County Match against Hampshire 2775 to 2678
This year’s inter-county match was incorporated into the Andover Saxon Shoot, and the weather was so awful the shoot was abandoned after six dozen. None of the Sussex Team retired.
To the Team: thank you all so much for turning up and supporting Sussex against our arch rivals Hampshire! We managed to beat them despite the weather, and the Team Manager would like to congratulate you all on good scores despite the wind and rain.
Sussex archers also did remarkably well in the Saxon tournament itself
