EMAS Sydney Bond Inter-Counties

EMAS Sydney Bond Inter-Counties

On Sunday 17th September the EMAS Sydney Bond Inter-Counties match was hosted by Lincoln Archers.

NCAS fielded almost a full team competing against Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire. Derbyshire and Leicestershire did not put in teams which was a great shame for such a great junior tournament.

For many of the young NCAS archers this was their 1st time shooting for the County. All our archers shot incredibly well, helping and supporting each other throughout the day. Despite shooting conditions not being the best as it was incredibly blustery many of our archers put in claims for Rose awards.

So how did NCAS do? Well, our young archers did amazing winning the team events for Recurve, Compound and Longbow. A huge big thank you to our Junior Squad who made my life as the Team Captain for the day very easy.

Well done juniors, you were amazing. A huge big thanks to Fii West-Ley for making sure we got some photos from this event.
