MJ Evans Fencing takes the lead.

Another successful competition, we had 9 teams of 2. Judges Charlie and Richard explained it was a very close call between the top 3.

Congratulations to Mark and Nick taking 1st position, Simon Gibbs & John Morgan 2nd and Dan Critchlow Fencing 3rd. We look forward to Mark and Nick coming back next year to defend their title.

The weather was reasonable this year which made life a bit easier compared to the weather last year.

Big thanks to all our sponsors.
