County Squad

County Squad & Team Selection

The County Squad is formed from archers who have reached 1st class classification and above (except for longbow; lower classification requirement).

Selection for inter-county competitions is based on scores achieved shooting rounds that include the maximum distances for ladies gents and juniors according to age.

The selection committee is made up of representatives of three county clubs on a rotational basis, the county captain, the junior squad rep with the meeting chaired by a member of the county committee.

Several Inter county competitions are held every year, these can be found on the county Calendar.

While the selection committee will be aware of scores attained during county competitions, archers shooting competitions outside of the county, or during target day rounds at their clubs, should send their scores to the county captain: Martin Ross

The selection of junior archers is also based on performance and again, archers shooting in competitions which are held outside of the county should pass their scores on to either the county captain or to the junior representative, so that they can be considered during the selection process.

Inter-County Competitions

Northamptonshire take part in six inter-county tournaments during the year. One tournament is held indoor and five outdoor.

Of the outdoor tournaments one is limited to junior archers and one limited to seniors (juniors can be selected for this but will shoot the senior round).

In the competitions against Bedfordshire, Leicestershire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire the number of archers scores selected to count are occasionally varied from those shown when a team cannot field a full side.
