Strong start of the year for Mansfield Fencing Club! After James Wake victory at the Yorkshire senior epee, Patrick Carey is bringing our club on the podium at the weekend in London, with James finishing 25th.
71 fencers at the start of the Leon Paul BRC Men’s Junior epee, both our fencers sailed through the first round of pools: 5 victories over 5 matches for Patrick (putting him at the top of the ranking) and 4 victories for James. After winning the first match 15/13, James lost 11/15 to enter in the last 16. A series of very strong wins (15/5, 15/8, 15/12 and 15/9) takes Patrick to the semifinals, where he lost 15/9 to Billy Shepherd.

This is a remarkable result for our fencers, both still under 17.
Well done guys!!!!
