Fencing Club music video

Stone Fencing Club has been featured in a video made by one of our members as part of their A level course work. The creator of the video, Amelia, received a distinction, so the examiners must have liked it!

Well done Amelia!

Harper Adams v Stone, Match Report

March 6, 2013
Stone Fencing Club travelled to Harper Adams University on Thursday 28 February for a competition evening. Ten members of SFC made the journey, which is a great turnout.

The Stone foil team, consisting of Dave, James M and Adrian, beat the home team 4-2. Well done!

Fencing for Stone in the epee team competition were David, Fred and Martin. They fenced really well, only losing one match, and won the competition 5-1. Congratulations!

There were five fencers competing in this event, so they took part in an individual poole. The Stone fencers were Hannah, Katey, Elliot and Liam, with Phoebe from Telford Girls School. This was a close competition, with Phoebe coming out on top by one point. The results were:
1. Phoebe
2. Katey
3. Elliot
4. Hannah
5. Liam

Thanks to everyone from the home and away teams to competing; to Hannah for organising the event; and to Ken and Andrew for organising us and presiding on the night.
