Five Counties Match

Once again at the beginning of October the Lancashire archery team took on the rest of the North of England (Cheshire,Cumbria,Yorkshire,Durham and Northumberland and Isle of Man) in all disciplinesat Knutsford Sports Club. Kniutsford.

The tournament turned out to be a pretty good day as far as weather gets. After some initial hiccups all became a steady slog to the end.

The results were sorted while soup and a roll and a cup of tea was provided for the archers.

In the Recurve section Lancashire won the Ladies and Gents team trophies, the match against Cheshire, winners over the longest distance and overall Recurve winners. However the compound and longbow teams were not successful. So if you shoot longbow or compounds, come on, there is room for improvement. However those who took part gave of their best and Lancashire and myself can only be grateful, well done. Elaine E. Muncaster Team Manager Senior

Rising Lancashire Stars

Junior Compound Archers Thomas Rice of Nethermoss and Maddison Codling of Assheton, put in exceptional performances at the September Double FITA STAR at Corus Deeside, North Wales.

Thomas shot 3 UK Records (plus 4 NCAS and 2 LAA County Records). Maddison shot 2 UK National Records (which were also NCAS and 2 LAA Records).

Both archers – unsurprisingly – managed to secure 1st place in their respective age/bow categories.

Very well done!
