Peterborough based Griffin Archers, is beginning 2020 with an exciting new venture. Within their Coaching team they have 3 Archers, all AGB qualified coaches, who have experience in Archery totalling almost 100 years!

So along with the rest of the Griffin Archers family we are offering a 4-hour dedicated coaching session open to every AGB Archer. We will then invite you along to our club nights as a free visitor within the following 3 months, giving you the chance to catch up and re-work any issues with the coaching team.

These sessions run on the 3rd Sunday of each month through 2020 and full details including the cost can be found on the Griffin Archers Website at https://griffinarchers.co.uk/progressive-archery-training-programme/

CAA caused upset at the National County Team Championships over the weekend by unseating the favourites Worcestershire and narrowly missing out on the top spot to Warwickshire in the Recurve Women's event.

Pictured above (left to right) are Silver medallists (Jess Sagoo: Peacock Archers, Paula Langton: Peacock Archers and Eleanor Brugg: Cambridge University Bowmen).

Recurve Men and Compound Men battled it out and finished 18th and 11th respectively. A fabulous showing for the county as we've not taken part in this event for nearly ten years!

Full match report to follow.

Archers from across Cambridgeshire took part in Southern Counties first postal competition this winter season.

Based on the popular Portsmouth round (which most clubs shoot regularly during the winter) Cambridgeshire's archers performed brilliantly across all bow-styles and against much larger counties, many of whom have several GB international archers!

Congratulations particularly to Kimberley Callerghan (Cambridge University Bowmen) who finished 7th overall in the barebow category and Max Harris 4th and Daniel Dace 8th (Netherhall Archers) and Flo Levitt 10th (Peacock Archers) who finished in the top ten for the juniors.

On the back of this trial we expect participation to grow this winter and we'll be looking to clubs across the county to get shooting and submit scores for what will no doubt be another great postal competition.

Full results in the spreadsheets below.

Cambridgeshire team

Cambridgeshire verses Norfolk County Match, 27/3/2019 Hellesdon High School , Norwich.

Cambs has had it first County Match of the 2019 season against a team from Norfolk County.

The match was hosted by the City of Norwich Archers and I am please to say it was a convincing victory for the Cambs team, helped by the fact the Norfolk fielded a number of long bow archers that had to compete with our recurve archers.

However a victory is a victory and we look forward to a return match sometime later in the year.

The round shot was a WA25, a round that most of us do not shot much, so it was interesting .

The Cambridgeshire Team consisted of 5 compound, 6 recurve, and 1 barebow as follows - Steve Haynes, Jack Atkinson, Adam Kentrop, Karl Swepson, Laura Wright, Max Harris, Martin Sullivan, Howard Daly, Anke Hannemann, Sophie Roberts, Florence Levitt and Kimberley Callaghan.

Everybody shot well and enjoyed the match. There were some notable performances and 8 individual medal winners from the 12 team members.

Individual Gold medalists were Laura Wright, Martin Sullivan, Kimberly Callaghan, Florence Levitt and Max Harris.

Individual Silver medallists were Steve Haynes and Anke Hannemann.

Individual Bronze medallist was Sophie Roberts.

As team captain my thanks go out to all who shot ( and the mums and dads who have to be the taxi service 🙂 to Norwich county for hosting us and to Stephen Dace for arranging the match.

Steve Haynes ( Team Capt )
