Adam and Andrew selected for the England U15 squad

More good news for EC fencers; Andrew Hughes and Adam Whitelaw have been selected to be part of the U15 England Epee team to fence in Wroclaw, Poland in March 2012.
It takes a lot of dedication and considerable travelling to competitions all around the country to achieve this goal.
Both fencers have been so close to selection in the past, and we are delighted that they have both made the team this time around.

Brixton LPJS 2012

Entry form and further details on the Leon Paul Junior Series web site:

Saturday 28-01-2012

Stockwell Park High School, Clapham Road, London, SW9 0AL
Categories: u9, u11, 13, 15 boys and girls
This is an epee only event
Two competitions for the price of one!

Ideal for fencers of all standards – Brixton Fencing’s LPJS has two levels of competition in one event.

The main competition runs like every other in the Leon Paul Junior Series, complete with medals and points which may qualify you to join the England epee squad in Poland (points apply to U13s and U15s only).

For newer fencers (U13 and below) who are building experience and learning to compete, getting knocked out in the first round doesn’t mean you have to go home early and empty handed. We are running a plate competition with special medals – in a competition designed to build confidence, and recognise new talent.

R.I.P Jamie Ackerman

Jamie, a seventeen year old fencer from Truro, died on Sunday after being hit by a car on his scooter after training at his club.
We knew him from competitions and fencing camps and he will be remembered for his helpfulness and strength of character, and also for his yellow rubber duck strategically placed on his rear warning line at competitions. R.I.P Jamie.

May Half Term Training Camp 2011

Sixteen ECfencers took part in our two day training camp in the Eric Liddell Sports Centre at the start of the May half term.

Mick Johnson looked after the foilists and sabreurs (our foil coach, Chris Galesloot was in Holland competing in the Dutch Championships).

David Buist, epeeist, who as a Junior was ranked in the top 40 in the world and has been coaching the GB Junior squad since 2006, led our footwork routines and worked with our epeeists.

Jon Rhodes taught all our fencers how to sprint properly (not exactly needed for fencing but an obvious benefit for other sports). Performance sessions included coordination for the younger fencers and focusing & regaining confidence for the older fencers.

Official ECfencing training diaries were introduced to the fencers. Spike has been testing out our training diary for the past couple of months which is a A5 portfolio folder containing information and other ‘stuff’ to help our fencers prepare, train and compete. It is intended that these diaries become a way of life for our fencers, just like wiki is for homework!

Steve Hyman, armourer, taught our younger fencers about kit maintenance and fixed all our broken kit.

At the end of the camp I hope our fencers left more knowledgeable, and had a fun time.

Photos from the camp are here

Kent Youth Championships 2011 - ECfencers results

Nineteen ECfencers took part in this years Kent U10/12/14 Championships this weekend hosted at Eltham College. We won ten out of a possible twelve medals including all three Gold medals.
Lewis Tuck, Luke Wells and Andrew Hughes won the Under 10’s,12’s and 14’s titles respectively which repeats the success of Eltham fencers over the past two years at this competition.
Our under 10’s have continued to show their domination in South East England by having all six fencers placed higher than any other club or school fencer.

The fencer of the day was Lachlan Jarvie who is our youngest fencer in the team and faced fencers two years older in his first competition. He won four of his pool matches (all non-ECfencers) and only lost to his two team mates both senior in years. Lachlan was finally placed fifth just outside a medal position; not bad for a fencer with two more years in the same age group. Well done also to his coaches Elliott Grover and Chris Galesloot, they must be very proud of his performance.

All our fencers were great on the day, but other coaches were very complementary of the footwork skills of Isak, the choice of actions from Arthur, Felix, Dimitri, Charlie and Owen, the dedication from Luke, George and Ethan and the sportsmanship from Edward, Lewis and Elliot.

Thanks to everyone who helped run the event; Katie, Manola, Peter, Janet, Pyscho, Andy, Flo, Chris, Tarann, Mick, Ellz, Jon, Fran, Cos, Spike and anyone I have missed.

A few pictures from the event are here

Warwick LPJS 2011

On Saturday 7th May three ECfencers competed in the LPJS Warwick Epee event.

This is one of the best attended LPJS events of the year, largely due to the excellent running of the competition and all metallic pistes.

Elliott Grover continued his good run of success since moving up an age group by wining the silver medal in the U17 event.

Ells was on excellent form after a tricky first pool by winning all but one match in his second pool. After a bye to the last 8 he found himself 12-13 down with a few seconds remaining but scored a great counterattack hit to level the score and go into extra time. The extra minute of play lasted only 2 seconds as Ells instantly launched a close quarter attack to win the match. The following match resulted in a 2 point lead for Ells taking him to the final where he met the talented Paul Sanchez-Lethem of Brixton FC. This match fnished 15-7 to Paul but ended a confident and inspiring day from Ells.

Results from all ECfencers are:
Elliott Grover - SILVER - U17
Andrew Hughes - 13th place - U13
Jordan Ratcliffe - 11th Place - U17

Full results are (unofficially) on the Fencing Forum here.

British Youth Championships 2011

Over the Bank Holiday weekend five ECfencers competed in six events at this years British Youth Championships held again at the Sheffield English Institute of Sport.
To qualify for this event fencers need to be placed high in their regional championships therefore only the best fencers are able to compete in this competition.
Expectations were not high as our fencers were either the youngest in the age group or it was their fist visit to this competition but the pleasant surprise of the weekend was Ben Dines (pictured) continuing his winning streak since switching to Sabre as he won the 8th place medal in U12 Sabre. This also means Ben has automatically qualified for next years Championships.
Andrew Hughes in his first year in U14 was well placed in 12th in Epee and all our fencers performed and behaved very well.

Results of ECfencers are:
U18 Foil - Ells Grover 39th place
U14 Epee - Andrew Hughes 12th place and Adam Whitelaw 34th place
U14 Foil - Andrew Hughes 21st place
U12 Sabre - Ben Dines 8th place and Tom Hood 33rd place

Elite Epee Final Results

Our only fencer who reached the final 8 of the Elite Epee Series finished with a SILVER medal. Adam Whitelaw made hard work of the pool round finishing in sixth place overall then even harder work of the DE; Adam beat the no.3 seed 6-5 then the no.2 seed 10-9 to reach the final. Adam was up against the no.1 seed, Josh Stevens, who was the stronger fencer on the day with the final score 15-9 to Josh. Well done to Adam winning silver and hopefully next season more Eltham fencers will make all three of the series and perhaps make it to the finals.
Full results are HERE.
