The 2017 Mercia Match

This year the match was hosted by Lincolnshire but the venue was again the Staveley Range in Derbyshire.

Nottinghamshire were represented by a full County Team of fifteen, with the ten best scores to count, and a County Ladies Team of two. The other teams competing were Derbyshire and Lincolnshire, with the latter also fielding a ladies team. Northamptonshire and Leicestershire were not represented.

The result was a win for the second year running for Derbyshire, with Lincolnshire second and Nottinghamshire in third place. Mr A Cooney repeated his performance of last year and was awarded the top place at 100 yards with 195 ex 200. He also again lead the scores for Nottinghamshire with an aggregate of 580 ex 600.

The Ladies match was won by Lincolnshire. Nottinghamshire had only two in their team so were really out of the running. There was no Derbyshire Ladies team.

The final scores for the County Teams out of 6000 were as follows:
