My first year wearing the Captain’s armband for St Albans

The year started off on a high with victories in our first three matches – MK at home, and away at Salle Hadalin and Luton.

Sadly our victory at Salle Hadalin didn’t count for anything as shortly afterwards the club closed, so our win was voided.

However, their loss proved to be our gain as both Simon and Gemma from SH came to fence at St. Albans and they both became regular fencers on the team throughout the rest of the year.
We finished the year ranked 2nd overall in the championship and on top of that, we also managed 2nd in Foil. Sadly we just missed out on bronze medal for epee, finishing 4th there.

None of this would have been possible without all the fantastic support from everyone throughout the year.

So….. thank you all.  It’s been an honour and a privilege to captain the team in my first year…
Hopefully we can do even better next year…. but we can only do that with enough support from everyone at the club.

Bring on 2019!
