Tri-Counties Match – Results

Tri-Counties Match – Results

A great change to be out competing again and great to see many of the county archers come out and support the inter-county shoot. Some of the team were called in last minute as others had to stand down due to all carbon arrow ban for the day. An ongoing storm we all know but the farmer who puts his sheep to pasture on the land doesn’t allow them so we have to go with the organisers decision, now let’s look past that.

Welcome to Fii on the team first time out for the county ‘See wasn’t that scary’.

So it was a cold dry breezy day and Northants turned up and gave it our all I as your long standing suffering captain took the usual barracking from Bedfordshire, I would be worried If Terry wasn’t giving me grief.

At one point the captain were called together by the judges and were warned that the shoot may be reduced to a national due to the wind conditions, but luckily the wind stayed as a head on wind so the worries of the judges was soon hushed. Unlike the barracking form Terry!!

We all manged to get packed up just as a shower came over and let us know it was about, we were ushered into the indoor range where we waited for the results!!

In the end the scores came in.

Recurve 1st
Compound 2nd
Longbow 2nd
Bare Bow 1st
Juniors 2nd

Overall winners…. Northants!!!!

Thank you for those who filled in the gaps last minute and all that !! Again thank you all for your support greatly appreciated.

And hope to see you all on the line again soon, watch out for the next Postal shoot details in the next few days.

NCAS Coaching Sessions

NCAS Coaching Sessions

Now that things are beginning to get back to some degree of normality, as in previous years NCAS will be arranging coaching sessions at Montsaye Community Sports Centre in Greening Road, Rothwell.

The dates are:
24th October 2021
28th November 2021
23rd January 2022
27th February 2022
27th March 2022

All these dates are a Sunday.

The cost will again be £25 to cover all five sessions.

Over this period we expect to cover individual technique coaching, bow and equipment tuning including fletching and wooden arrows, sports psychology, strength and conditions and nutrition. The county’s senior coaches will be in attendance.

This coaching is aimed at archers relatively new to the sport.

As in previous events the junior session will be from 9.30.am. until 12.30.pm. and the seniors from 1.30.pm until about 4.00.pm.

I am afraid that due to Covid restrictions numbers this year will be restricted and places offered on a first come basis. To keep the room numbers down we are asking that, if possible, a junior is brought to the venue by a single parent and even left, if they are happy with that.

Please contact me if you require a place.

John Marshall
County Coaching Organiser
