County Coaching Organiser

This is to advise that Northants requires a new County Coaching Organiser as soon as possible and that I shall be standing down from the role.

This is largely an admin role with the need to either attend or submit a short report to the occasional NCAS meeting and any coach can undertake the role. There is support from Barry Molson – the Regional Coaching Organizer and a team at AGB. You would also be fully supported by the Level 2 coaches around the county.

If anyone is interested or would like further information please get in touch with me.

The CCO needs to be elected by the county’s coaches and I would arrange an on-line vote accordingly. A volunteer would make things so much earlier.

Angela Bray

With great sadness the county passes on the news from Angie’s family, that she sadly passed away yesterday, 5th April 2019.

Angie was our dear county secretary for many years, working tirelessly for both Northamptonshire and her club Kettering Archers. She will be greatly missed by everyone.

Here’s a message from her family.

It’s with tremendous sadness that Liz and I have to share that we said goodbye to our Mum (Angela) last night. She passed away after having battled against a rare form of head and neck cancer for the last two years.

Even in the face of a terminal diagnosis just under a year ago, Mum never let her illness stop her from doing the things she loved – including supporting her grandchildren (Kayleigh, Kieran Kate and Megan) her archery work and leadership with Kettering Archers and NCAS, & her teaching work with Tresham College.

Mum had a strong faith which helped her through the last few years, as well as coping with the loss of our Dad, & then subsequently her partner Chris, both to other forms of cancer. She was an active member of Carey Baptist Church, and was attending services regularly right up to last Sunday.

It’s impossible for us to put into words how much she was loved, and how much she will be missed by us all.

We’ll confirm funeral arrangements over the next few days via regular channels.
