Due to various reasons outside my control I have decided to not put a team into the upcoming Thoresby Match which was to take place on the 04/09/2016. For those archers who have accepted the invite and were able to shoot please except my sincere apologies as I know you will be disappointed.
I hope this will not be a sign of things to come and as such I would like to know what the archers think in regards to the following. If we as a county are not able to fulfil the required quantity to make up a team for such an event as for example ‘Thorseby’ (which has never reduced team size if a county who cannot field a full team on the day)
Do I as the Captain.
1. Instruct those who have agreed to represent the county – that we are not able to fulfil the required team
a. Let the archer decide if they still want to shoot
i. If they do still send them to the shoot
2. Have the archers agreed to shoot vote on do we still send whom we have and take the majority and go with the result.
3. Pull the team and send no one.
I’m more than happy to discuss this with anyone or you can let your club Representatives ‘Selectors’ now and they can pass your verdict onto me.
This is a question to all Northants archers those who have shot on the squad and for those who will soon be shooting at competitions and may be asked to represent the county one day.
