*TONIGHT* CLUB COMPETITION
It’s club comp night! There’ll be a short fitness group warm up, then kit on and straight into the comp.
It’s a team comp, we’ll be pairing our Beginners with more experienced fencers and will be great fun!
3 COUNTIES MATCH: HITCHIN v SAFC
SAFC travelled to Hitchin on Tuesday for a league match.
Unfortunately, Hitchin were too strong and just edged the Foil, taking that 5-4. They also took the epee with a 6-3 win.
After 3 matches we’re ranked 2nd overall, tied with Watford & Bedford. We’re 2nd in Epee (tied with Watford, Bedford & Dacorum) and 3rd in Foil (tied with Dacorum, Luton, Watford & MK)

OBITUARY: MIKE WHALE
The club is very saddened to hear of the passing of Mike Whale.
Mike was involved right at the very beginning of SAFC and it’s fair to say the club may not have existed without him.
A former SAFC head coach, Mike also coached at other clubs – one of our members was coached by Mike as a junior, back in the 1980’s at Welwyn Hatfield FC.
See you on the piste……… en garde!
