Hi All

The results are in for the inter-county Portsmouth but before we get to these, I would like to say thank you for all those that took part and sent me there scores and to your club Reps who sent in scores on your behalf.

There were so many of you that took part in this one that I’m waiting on more ‘Postal’ badges to be produced so please be patient.

For those that may have forgotten to give me your Scores that took part in the county champs I have taken these scores, don’t panic I have taken your highest if you have given me more than one.
Again as I mentioned we had a lot of you take part in total 152 archers, fantastic!!!

Myself, and the Bedfordshire county captains got together just over a week ago and set the team numbers.

For all those who took part you will be given a ‘Postal Badge’ 2022.

Those in Team A will get the badge, and the Year bar & Broche if applicable (1st time on the squad).

Some of the non-novices would have realised I have mentioned Team ‘A’ we had so many take part from both counties we have a ‘Team B’ unfortunately these guys will only receive the Postal Badge.

However these archers are given the ‘Team A’ a run for their money!!

So enough of my rambling you want to know who won!!!
