Salisbury Fencing Club

Geoffrey Russell Cup

2019 saw the inaugural competition for the Geoffrey Russell Cup. During summer term all members of Salisbury Fencing Club were invited to participate in this Foil competition. On the final day of the season the four highest scorers fenced off to decide who would be the club champion.

As neither Carl nor Richard were present on the final day, Chris and Pete (being 5th and 6th in the table) stepped in to replace them. The results were as follows:

Semi-Final 1
Steve158Pete
Semi-Final 2

Final
Steve1511Chris

So Steve is this year's Champion - congratulations to him!
