SHROPSHIRE JUNIORS WMAS CHAMPIONS
Wow what a result!
Shropshire Archery Juniors became West Midland Archery Champions for the third year running.
Shropshire hosted the competition this year at the Audco Archers shooting ground in Newport where teams from Warwickshire, Staffordshire, Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Shropshire all competed for the WMAS Annual Challenge Cup.
The archers shooting 12 dozen arrows consisting of 3 dozen arrows at 4 different distances according to age.
Two years ago Shropshire won at Worcestershire last year at Warwickshire and now on home soil, we are becoming the team to beat.
The team has archers from 9 years of age through to 17 years all shooting distanced according to their age.
They all represented Shropshire their clubs and their families brilliantly and should be very proud of themselves, i certainly am as team manager.
We are losing a few archers this year because of age and i wish them well shooting in the senior ranks now.
We welcomed several new members this year and they all mixed well and performed brilliantly.
The weather was lovely and sunny with a tricky wind but everybody shot well .
On 21st July the competition between EMAS V WMAS was held at Welbeck Nottingham.
Lauren Rawlings Joe Becker and James Beckett represented Shropshire in the seniors and of the 12 juniors in the competition Shropshire supplied 10 archers: Violet Walker, Katie Tonkinson, Leah Ferriday, Jess Hulse, Robbie Gillman, Lewis Bodkin, Finlay Scott, Katie Mundy-Gill, Toby Wiggin and Tom Wiggin.
Unfortunately the WMAS team lost but there were some individual medals won. This is a credit to the coaching that the clubs do and the practice and enthusiasm of the juniors.
Having won the Inter-county Shoot the last two years has shown that Shropshire are shooting as a team and to have 10 out of 12 at a Regional shoot is wonderful. The Heritage shoots bring them all together as a group by seeing one another regularly. This was so noticeable at the Junior Regional Inter-county shoot where other archers who are just as proud to represent their County just wander back to their tent and Shropshire were doing high fives supporting and generally interacting as a team. It was noticed and commented on by other Team Managers, long may that continue.
