Fencing: Northern Ireland Junior Foil Championships

This weekend saw the final round of the NI Junior Foil Series. In the Under 12 event, Will Nesbitt from year 8 was placed a very creditable 6th. This was great considering he has not competed in many events to date. RBAI fencer Matthew McKay won Silver in the Under 14 event with Rowan Luney and Noah Brown both taking the Bronze medal place. In the Under 16, Michael Thompson took the Bronze medal. Now that the NI Junior Foil Season for 2015/16 has come to an end, the final season’s ranking winners were announced. RBAI fencers that placed in the top 10 of their age group were as follows:

Under 16 - 4th, Michael Thompson; 6th, David Stewart; 7th, Nkosinathi Khumal.

Under 14 - 3rd, Matthew McKay; 4th, Noah Brown; 5th Rowan Luney.

Under 12 - 7th, Kai Cheuk; 10th, Max Moore. Congratulations to them all for a successful season.
