James Woodgate set out to Brighton Bowmen’s 1st Spring Tournament to shoot his 1st RS Double 60m Cadet Round with following H2H match. It was a lovely setting on a school playing field in Rottingdean with views to the sea behind the archers. The wind was a little tricky at times, nothing more than you’d expect being that close to the sea, but thankfully it was dry all day (although very cold if you were a spectator!).
Shooting above his age group, James shot really well and was rewarded with 556 in the morning followed by 544 in the afternoon. Not many cadet boys were there but they still ran the H2H and James won his first match, moving from up from 3rd to 2nd, and made a very strong challenge in the final taking his opponent to the very last set.
He’ll be going back there for more, hopefully in August!
