Excalibur Cup


Well done Amelia Penny who won a silver medal after making the final in the Girls’ U14 age group of the Excalibur Cup, held in Dublin back on Sunday 13th February. This was a strong performance from Amelia, a lone NI fencer competing against the best fencers of the RoI.


Scottish Open


Amelia’s brother Alexander also set out to compete in foreign fields this month, travelling to Scotland’s National Sports Centre in North Ayrshire to take part in the Scottish Open last Sunday 27th February. After doing well in the poule stage he was knocked out in a very close fight 14-15 in the last 32. This was a fencing step-up for Alexander and valuable experience of UK level competition.
