New Year News

Welcome to 2020!

Fencing restarts this Thursday, 9th Jan and we look forward to seeing you there.

In the meantime, let’s catch up on the highlights of our last night’s fencing way back in 2019:

SAFC won the 3 Counties League overall for 2019!

Team Captain Bryant accepts the trophy on behalf of the club ‘a great team effort throughout the year’

Dacorum’s captain Ian received the inaugural Pam Price Trophy for winning the Epee.  Watford took the foil honours.

Young Chris won himself a Leon Paul Magne-Tin for the ‘Best Attendance’ award for 2019.

And last but by very no means least…  TGFBO result:

Armourer Bird took the honours with some frankly amazing doughnuts… mmmm, delicious


And with 2019 done and dusted, it’s time to move on with events in 2020:

  • The Club Ladder League will be restarting this week and will run through to end of March – more details to be announced at training.
  • Next week Thurs 16th Jan is our first Epee Night of 2020.  Coach Lajos will be taking the group warm up and be available for individual lessons.
  • Our Beginners will be on their 7th week of their course, as it draws to a close at the end of January.  And speaking of Beginners….
  • Our next Beginners Course is planned for the start of February – taster session(s) available in advance.  Dates are TBC, please contact us if you would like to know more!

>>SAVE THE DATE – SAFC AGM – Tues. 18.02.2020 @ 8pm<<

The Club’s Annual General Meeting will be on Tues. 18th Feb.

All are welcome to attend and have a say in the running of the club.   Members paying quarterly or monthly are entitled to vote.

The club doesn’t run itself and a surprising amount of work happens behind the scenes to make it all happen as smoothly as it does.  So we welcome any opportunities for people to get involved and help share the load.

20.00 at the The King Harry pub, St Albans ( 2 King Harry Ln, St Albans AL3 4BL).  Food provided.

Please let us know if you are coming, so we can plan catering & seating accordingly; either let a committee member know, or go our Facebook page


See you at Practice – don’t be late for the warm-up and announcements!
