Southern Counties Junior Inter-Counties Championships

With another typical British Summer there has been precious little opportunity for archers to put in top flight performances. Even the Olympics archers had to contend with strong winds and heavy rain at times so it was a relief for our County juniors to turn up at the Southern Counties Junior Inter-Counties Championships and have a pleasant day. Our Compound team of Mary Perrott (1132), Ben Fordham (1146) and Rebecca Blewett (1068) managed 4th place with Ben Claiming his 6 gold end and an 1100 rose. The top compound score of the day was a 1282 Bristol 3 by Norfolk’s Lewis Humphries. The Recurve team was never going to feature high in the results table with only two of the 4 being able to shoot on the day. The winning team from Sussex averaged over 1150 for each archer but again the Herts team performed well with George Mills (1001) putting in another solid score and Jake Garner (814) claiming his first rose. Watch out Norfolk see you next year.

It’s back on!

It’s back on! the Hertford Company of Archers has managed to reschedule their Junior Fun Shoot for Saturday 20th September. After having to cancel earlier this year as a result of some major groundworks (It would have made a very interesting field shoot) members of the club have worked wonders to get the field to its present standard. So if you have any junior archers in your club, get them entered, they are guaranteed to have a great day out, I only wish I was a few years younger! (OK, a few more than a few) Click here for the entry form.
