Under 11 Girls – Well done to Rachael Lever on winning the clubs first ever EYC medal coming 3rd (dispite an injury). Maisie McCormack placed 5th after losing to Maisie in the quarter finals, with Eleanor Taylor 9th and Jessica Mickley 23rd in her first ever competition. 

Under 13 Girls – Bot Tabby Pattison (14th place) and Grace Wyer-Roberts (29th) were knocked out by Plymouth’s Yasmine Fosu who ended up in 7th. Sophie Rouwenhorst 34rd had a tough draw, however Grace and Sophie have another year in this age-group, so will be sure to get stronger results next year.

Under 15 Girls – Amelia McCormack, in winning her her Last 64 match with a stunning 15-4 scoreline, narrowly lost out in the top 32 to 15-13 to eventual Silver medallist Ellie Hind. Her final position of 28th hardly reflects her performance on the day.

Under 11 Boys – With a lot of inexperienced or fencer with another year in the age-group, this was very much an event to gain experience for future years. The top local result went to Augustus Wyer-Roberts in 28th place, Stephen Alcock 30th and William Furguson 32nd, however with another year in the age-group for all 3 boys these were really solid results. Other placings included Myles Holdford 33rd, Thomas Lemmon 34th, Ethan Waller 35th and Thomas Stegeman 36th. 

Under 13 Boys – Marcus Arnold showed real maturity at the event and after a great 1st round he was ranked 7th, following a bye through the last 64, a 10-7 win over Oscar Plant he was finally knocked out by Finn Redfern 8-7 to place 9th in England. Well done. The rest of the local fencers were pretty new to this level of fencing, however all the boys performed well placing – 34th Alex Alcock, 39th Oli Lemmon, 46th Harvey Steophens-Dunn, 47th Henry Hart, 50th Ben Naylor & 52nd Daniel Spiby.

Under 16 Boys – Dax Beresford Wylie had a geat round 1 wining 5 out of 6 matches to be ranked 10th after the poules, however following a bye in the last 64, was caught cold by James Odgers to finish in 18th place. Matthew Lever never really woke up on the day and finishes in 49th.

Well done to all those who attened and we look forward to more success in next year’s event.
