Chichester Fencing Club fielded a mixed team in the Sussex team epee competition as Robin Elliot stepped in to join up with Charlotte Beadle and Kathy Evans.

With two junior members in this well-attended adult competition, the team were pleased with second place.

Oscar O’Hara and Alex Jolley, two of the Chichester club’s under-18s, fenced fabulously in the Sussex men’s foil.

Jolley was awarded the coveted style trophy for his amazing footwork and blade control and O’Hara took home the under-18 cup, the under-20 cup and, incredibly, blew away the entire field to win the championships and collect a well-deserved gold medal.
