Essex success at the National Inter-Counties Team Competition


Essex was one of more than 20 counties to send teams to the first Inter-Counties Team Championship held at Lilleshall on 29th and 30th June where over 60 teams competed against each other.


The format was a 70/50m qualification round followed by a Team Head to Head Competition on Saturday and then a full FITA on the Sunday. Points were awarded based on the finishing positions for each round and overall winners decided for each of the bow styles.


Essex did very well indeed with the Gents Compound (Phil Glover, James King and Alex Purser) coming first, Gents Recurve (Ian Harris, Michael Judd and Matt Webb) coming second, Gents Longbow (Max Room,William Scoltock-Pape and Michael Wollaston) coming second, the Ladies Compound (Sophie Brown, Daisy Clarke and Anna King) coming third and Ladies Recurve(Susi Atkinson, Sophie Cole and Nicky Hunt) coming 10th.


Everyone enjoyed this very different shoot which is going to be held again next year and more pictures of the presentations are available at
