It was a great day yesterday for the GAFU Junior Foil competition held at Thornbury Leisure Centre. It was great to see so many students – past and present and congratulations to all the competitors for making it such a friendly and fun competition.
Special congratulations to the Gloucester club contingent who came back with three medals (at my last count!) and the Wycliffe Club team who came back with at least three medals!
Special mentions to Felix who did extremely well (even warranting a comment of complete disbelief from his referee when told he has only been doing foil for 3 weeks!) and to Adam who had the most nail-biting of finals and only finally lost at 10/9 having played the most “difficult match to ref of the day” according to his referee.
They all made me very proud to have been involved with their fencing.
