This year’s Sussex Under-18 epee championships saw an impressive haul of medals for Chichester.

Tom Hoskins and Charlotte Beadle both brought home bronze and Robin Elliot was in fighting form to become the Sussex under-18 men’s champion and collect a well-earned gold.

Meanwhile, Chichester juniors have brought home the Sussex team foil trophy for the 18th time. Despite some confusion over entries, the team – captained by Isaac Jolley – dealt with an awkward situation with huge team spirit.

They easily fought their way through the field to win convincingly and were congratulated by the opposition on their skill and sportsmanship.
