Newham Swords Cadet Training Day a Huge Success!

Well done to all the fencers who worked extremely hard at our Cadet Training Day, held at Sportsdock last Sunday.

The session was full with 30 fencers enrolled. A special mention also to our Newham Swords junior coaches, Teagan Williams-Stewart (reigning National Senior Women’s Foil Champion) and Emilija Lukaite (a former National U23 Women’s Foil Champion) who were fantastic with the kids! It was great to have these young female coaches on board.

Newham Swords leads the LPJS Chart

Well done to our all our Newham Swords fencers who won medals at the 2019 LPJS Events. Your success has put the Club at the top of the Leon Paul Junior Series Medals Table! 

Congratulations also to Dominik Juras who finished his LPJS season as the top U9 Fencer, and to Mikhel Archer who finished his LPJS season as the top U13 fencer! Well done everyone! Pierre and I and the Newham Swords Family are so proud of you all!!
