4-Way Intercounty Match - 22nd June 2008

The 4-way match became a 3-way match when London could not field a team; however the remaining counties, Essex, Kent and the hosts Middlesex, competed at the Greenwood Osterley A/C ground on Sunday. The weather conditions were marginally better than promised with no rain, but the wind was strong and gusty making shooting difficult throughout the day. However all the FITA/Metric rounds were completed without incident. Recurve, Compound, Longbow and Junior recurve teams were in action with the rules on final team composition being laid down by the host county.

The outcome was success for Essex, winning the Recurve, Longbow and Junior competitions and coming second in the compound.

 

The results were;

Senior Recurve

1st Essex 6930  , 2nd Middlesex 6627, 3rd Kent 6093

 

Senior Compound

1st Kent – 5022, 2nd Essex 4960, 3rd Middlesex 4627

 

Senior Longbow

1st Essex – 2055 , 2nd Kent 1573, 3rd Middlesex 1462

 

Junior Recurve

1st Essex – 4568, 2nd Kent – 4577 **, 3rd Middlesex 3477

 

** - Kent did not field a mixed gender team as required under local rules.
