Essex at the Archery GB National Indoor Championships

Last weekend a large contingent of Essex archers travelled to Stoneleigh Park for this years’ AGB National Indoor Championships. This is a WA18 ranking round followed by a series of knockout head to heads.

All bowstyles were well represented from all over the county, with Noak Hill Archers having the highest number of entries with ten.

It was its usual, very long day but produced some very good performances with Wendie King and Michael Judd (both Mayflower) helping England get the Recurve team gold and Richard Burgess getting the team bronze in Barebow.

In the individual events Amelia Chumber (Noak Hill) had a great day coming away with the ladies Barebow silver.

The standout performances of the day were Sharon Lawrence and Eric Mallet (both Noak Hill), who both took Longbow gold, Eric finishing 2nd in the ranking round and Sharon finishing 1st in hers.

All archers from Essex produced some great performances and proved yet again that Essex is a force to be reckoned with.

Well Done everyone you done your county proud
