3C match report & electric beginners

Last night we welcomed Dacorum Fencing Club for our first 3 Counties match of the year.

St Albans won the foil but Dacorum won the épée comprehensively and with that, the match overall.

Giles takes the win in the last foil match of the night!

The épée was a lot closer than the score suggests, we lost three matches by just one point so it could’ve been a different story… but it wasn’t to be on the night.

Thanks to Jake, Giles and Mel for the foil, and Philip and Simon for the épée.

While the 3C match happened, our beginners on the 8th week of their course of moved onto electric fencing.

We also said our goodbyes to Mel who fenced with us for the last time before Brexit’ing  🙄  Bon voyages!

Next week Thurs. 14th March we are due to host Watford for our next 3C fixture, which will be another challenging match for sure…
