There were excellent results from Irish fencers at the UK season opener in Colchester this weekend!
David Alexander and Victoria Duxbury secured bronze medals amid very strong fields in the foil categories. All four Irishmen competing in foil placed in the top half (including a L16 for Chris Lennon), while Lucy Johnson reached the quarter-finals in épée. Well done to all our fencers!
