3 COUNTIES LEAGUE MATCH – SAFC AWAY AT BEDFORD 17.09

We knew it was going to be tough and so it proved to be.  Bedford at home were just too strong for us but we showed amazing consistency:  losing the Foil 3 – 6 and the Epee 3 – 6 also.

Thanks to those who competed:  FOIL: Alex, JD & Simon and EPEE: Richard, James & Jeremy.

We beat Bedford in both weapons in the first leg back in May, so it’s not all bad.

Our next 3C match is away at Watford on Wed.23rd October.

EPEE NIGHT – THURS 26.09

Epee fans rejoice!  for this Thursday is Epee Night at SAFC

Fresh from European Penthalon Championship success, Coach Lajos will be putting aside his haul of medals and taking the group warm up & footwork and be available for individual lessons.

Foil and Sabre can still be fenced as normal, but there may not be a foil coach available.

(For October onwards, Epee Night will revert to its usual slot on the 3rd Thursday of the month)

See you at practice!!

NB:  please remember that BF Membership is mandatory to fence at SAFC – please see here for details
