RFC fencers win away match with RMAS (Sandhurst)

22 June 2018

There were three RFC teams who travelled to the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst (RMAS) for the first in another round of club matches.

The RFC fencers were – Chris Smith, Mike Smith, James Radford (RFC A), Rathish Punneli, Niall Maynard, Lewis Jackson (RFC B), Ashlee Grainger, Chris Pyrah, Josh Jackson (RFC C).

There were two rounds of team relay matches, with the RFC teams winning all but one match. RFC A won their final match against RMAS A in a very tight affair by 45-40, where both teams claimed slender leads for the first few bouts, before extending their lead towards the end of the match.

The full results were as follows:

RMAS A v RFC B – lost 45-34 RMAS B v RFC A – won 45-19 RMAS C v RFC C – won 45-24

RMAS A v RFC A – won 45-40 RMAS B v RFC C – won 45-18 RMAS C v RFC B – won 45-34

A return match will be hosted by RFC on 11th July, open to all fencers except those with international experience. If you are interested in fencing, please either email the club or speak to Phil.
