07/08/2011  County Team match against Leicestershire and Rutland 

Posted by grayteammanager on 08/09/2011 10:54:00 last updated 08/09/2011 10:54:00

 A squad travelled to Phoenix Archers in Smeeton Westerby, Leicestershire, for a combined junior/senior team match. Those competing were:
Recurve: Helen Faulkner, Penny Bedford, Lisa Spinks, Geoff Evans, Ian Prescott, Andrew Stammers, Ged Goulsbra, Steve Arnold, Matt Ellis.
Compound: Stephanie Mountney, Geoff Thomas, Graham Crampin, Gary Griffin, Ryan Mountney.
Longbow: Rosemarie Cawkwell.
Juniors: Amy Gott, Scott Bullen, Christopher Brown, Charlene Marsh, Henry Mynott, Sian Ducker, Abbie Spinks.
The weather was difficult to say the least - a pretty strong and gusty wind, and rain started to threaten during the afternoon, finally soaking everyone during the awards ceremony! For a while now we have struggled to beat Leicestershire and Rutland, sadly for us they prevailed again - well done to them - although our lady recurves did win their section 2658 to 2581. I won't list all the section scores, suffice to say Leicestershire and Rutland do have a very strong junior squad, and are pretty good in the other categories too. The overall score tally for the match was L & R: 21124 to our 19130. I do know that we are noticably improving as a county though (see below!) and I think we may well end their run of wins soon. Next year we have home advantage when the match is held in Lincolnshire.
