Youngsters from Sidmouth and East Devon Fencing Club travelled to Tavistock for the Devon Age Group championships.

Fresh from the British Youth Championship, Finn Manning showed the experience gained there and his excellent technique to win the Under-13 Boys Foil, with Jacob Simey-Jones winning bronze.

Henry Keate won bronze in the Under-15 Boys Foil, and Tilly Limbrick showed amazing skill and accuracy in the events first Under-7 Girls Foil competition to land the gold award.

The final of the Under-11 Boys Foil reached a nail biting climax with the scores moving up evenly, Alexis Jouan missing out on gold by just one point at 9-10.

Ollie Manning won bronze, and also competing were Miles Limbrick and James Hands.

Sidmouth and East Devon Fencing Club will continue to train as usual at Sidmouth Sports Centre on Thursday evenings throughout August, and new members of all standards are very welcome.
