Sabre sucesses at Veterans Championships

Wednesday, 18th March 2015

Ed Simpson and Geoff Silverman both came home with medals from the Sabre event at the  Veterans National Championships in Gloucester in March.


Ed, who was seeded 5th after fencing well in  two rounds of poules, won four DE fights and a bronze medal. He lost to  the eventual winner, Chris Farren,  in a exciting gala semi final.


In the process he knocked out fellow Bedford Club member Geoff Silverman.  Geoff however was thrilled with his result as it gave him best placed fencer in his age group (Cat 3) - and a  place in the GB team at the World Veterans event in Limoges later in the year.


Also delighted with an excellent result was Caroline Clancy, who made the last eight in the women's sabre event.
