Here’s the target list for the NCAS County & Open Championships taking place next Sunday 26th September, kindly hosted by Wellingborough OAC.
Hi all archers,
Just a note to say we have 1 more outdoor inter-county match which has just been finalised, the Tri-county match between Beds, Bucks, and Northants.
The round and team size are as follows.
The round will be a Western for all seniors with age-appropriate junior Westerns, so 8 dozen arrows on a 122 com face at:
Western Seniors 60 & 50 yards
Short Western Juniors U16 50 & 40 yards
Junior Western Juniors U14 40 & 30 yards
Short Junior Western Juniors U12 30 & 20 yards
Ages above are junior gents, for junior girls allow another 2 years for each category.
We are proposing teams as follows:
3 Juniors (any bow type)
I have already approached your club selectors for names and will be looking to use any scores that have already been put in at the recent matches & scores from the county champs.

The Sydney Bond – Junior EMAS Inter-counties Team Tournament 2021
Today I stood in as Team Captain for our Junior County Squad at the EMAS Junior InterCounties “Sydney Bond” match.
The teams were very much reduced from previous years and the round changed from the normal 12 dozen round to 6 dozen National rounds.
I am very proud of how our juniors welcomed each other before the start and helped each other throughout the tournament. There was most definitely some nervousness amongst our athletes as the sighters started but our archers soon settled down and shot fantastic, especially as for many it was the 1st tournament they had shot for 18 months. It was really great to see them all sit together at lunchtime and bond as a team.
Our recurve team finished in 3rd place and compound team finished 2nd.
Individually Northamptonshire received 2 awards – Archie Bromley (recurve) and Maisie Hailes (compound).
Nottinghamshire – 2834
Derbyshire – 2819
Northamptonshire – 2652
Lincolnshire – 1638
Lincolnshire – 640
Northamptonshire – 548
Girls Recurve – Holly Steeper (Lincolnshire) – 612
Boys Recurve – Archie Bromley (Northamptonshire) – 604
Girls Compound – Maisie Hailes (Northamptonshire) – 548
Boys Compound – Oscar Orford (Lincolnshire) – 640
Finally, a very big thank you to our athletes who made my job very easy and pleasurable today, you were a credit to our County and our sport. Well done.
Anyone interested in potentially becoming a judge, or even just having a go at it. The NCAS county champs on 26th September, will also be a Have-a-go for judges!
