These events are qualifying rounds for the British Youth Championship’s held in Sheffield at the end of April and to qualify fencers have to be placed in the top 4 of the rankings, and we have 5 fencers achieving this.

Qualified for the British Youth Championships:

Elliott Grover - 3rd place in U18 Foil
Adam Whitelaw - 3rd place in U14 Epee (and a BYE)
Andrew Hughes - 2nd place in U14 Foil
Andrew Hughes - BYE in U14 Epee

Fencers agonisingly close to a place in the finals:

Well done to all our fencers taking part and we have 2 fencers in all three weapons qualifying for the British Youth Championships
