Bronze for Harding at the National Series Final

Nottingham's George Harding took home the bronze medal following an exciting day of archery at this year's National Series Final in Oxford.

After losing to former Olympic medallist, Simon Terry, in the semi-final, George fought back to win his bronze medal match against Tom Barber in straight sets!

A video of the match can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7KA20DeYgEw

Congratulations to George, and hopefully even more BUTTS League archers will be joining him next year!

BUTTS Summer Series 

The BUTTS League consistently wins medals at every student event we attend. Over the next year, it would be great to expand this success to the wider world of archery in the UK. Many of our top archers already do this, but sending strong student contingents to competitions together should encourage more members of the league to attend external competitions.

The inaugural  BUTTS Summer Series (the event I advertised on the Facebook group, the one which happened to have representatives from six of the eight clubs in attendance, and the one I'm going to advertise here) is the first step on the way to allowing us to compete together in the outside world!

At Leg 1 (Leamington & Midlands Counties York/Hereford) Jack Bryant (Birmingham) won gold, Matt Cranham (Warwick) won open gold (awarded to the top score which didn't win the Midlands title), Andy Iles (Birmingham) won open silver, Jorge Lindley (Warwick) won open bronze and Ash McCloud (Loughborough Alumni) won Ladies open silver.

The Warwick team of Matt, Jorge, Rachael Hutchison and Ben Pooley also took the hotly-contested team award and our adopted Olympian, Sherab Zam from Bhutan, won all the things!

Leg 2 saw representatives from Birmingham, Nottingham, Nottingham Trent, Oxford, Warwick and Loughborough Alumni head to the Andoba Double FITA Star in Hampshire. George Harding (Nottingham), who also finds himself ranked in first place for the National Series Final on August 26th, comfortably won the event and achieved a PB of 1311 on the first day! 

Leg 3 (Quantum Windsor) on Bank Holiday Monday, August 27th is the perfect opportunity for novices and those who prefer rounds at shorter distances to take part in an external competition. The entry form can  be downloaded here - the competition only costs £6 to enter and doesn't start until midday!


Before the start of next term, we will also have the first ever BUTTS Field Championship, which is also the first ever student field archery championship in the UK! This will take place at March Hare Archers, Worcestershire on September 23rd and will cost £8 each to enter, with an initial allocation of six archers per club (although this may well increase if some clubs don't take up their full allocation). An entry form will be sent out to all clubs in the near future!


Now on to some admin things:


  • I've updated the records on the website - please check them and let me know if I've missed any!
  • Please join the BUTTS League Facebook group here.
  • I will be sending out the provisional schedule and asking for new exec committee contact details for next year soon. Dates aren't currently known for the national events in term two, but I will let you know when everything's happening as soon as possible.

BUCS Outdoor Results Published

Once again BUTTS put in a very good showing at the BUCS Outdoor Championships. The BUTTS League brought back 14 medals in total. Special mention to the Gents Novices who had 9 of the top 10 spots from the BUTTS league. Warwick gained 2nd Experienced team and Nottingham won the Novice teams. Also well done to George Harding (Nottingham) for his 4th win in 4 years at BUCS Outdoor.

Despite the wind and the rain it was a really good shoot, thanks to the BUTTS folk who were on field party and the alumni who came to help and drink. Warwick Alumni (and Blake) won the boat race with the actual Warwick team not too far behind. We now look forward to BUCS Indoors, which may be moving to the Ricoh Arena in Coventry for next years competition.
