Barwell Cup Team Event 09/12/07

We did well in putting forward 3 teams, albeit with the help of some ringers. Streatham A came 3rd with 24 points only 2 points behind Kingston who scored 26 points. In what appears to becoming an annoying habit Wimbledon A won again this year with 27 points, oh well there’s always next year. Streatham B came 4th and Streatham C came 5th. Notable performances came from Joel who was 2nd in the Epee, despite having hardly touched his epee this year, and Nike who came 3rd in the foil.

Wilkinson Sword - London Team Event 25/11/07

Streatham enjoyed a much improved performance in this years Wilkinson Sword and finished in the top 10. The team (Gavin Moulton, Joel Collyer and John Watts) fenced well but succumbed to an experienced Salle Gadaski team of Italian veterans before easily beating Greenwich and defeating the Barbarians 45-39 in an often heated encounter, before tiredness crept in and defeat to old rivals ULU ensued.

Streatham V Salle Gadaski 26/04/07

A friendly match with Salle Gadaski against us ruffians. Everyone was a winner because Salle Gadaski brought along 15 fencers, fencing all weapons, which is a major feat and probably a record for a club night match. This gave everyone experiece of fencing different people, maybe being on home turf gave streatham the edge. Hopefully this will be the first of many clubs matches in London and we look forward to the return match at Salle Gadaski.

Sussex Uni Open 04/07

Nick Fihosy came through to 3rd Place at this endearingly ramshakle affair, which shouldn't be taken too seriously.

Surrey Novice and Intermediate Foil 25th March 2007-2008

This years event was held at nearby Dulwich college, which is always an added bonus on a Sunday morning. There was a good haul of medals for streatham fencers, Selina Hill was in the final of the ladies intermediate foil and came away with 2nd place. Taking the opportunity to fence in the novice foil earlier in the morning and she also took 3rd place in that, perhaps it was only a warm up for the intermediate event.

In the men's novice foil newcomer Elliot Nash took 3rd place and Charles Grose came a respectable 5th place in the mens intermediate foil.

Surrey Team Open 02/07

A good day out at the Surrey Epee and Sabre the epeeists (Chris Coton, Joel and Gavin) beat Guildford 45-40 and then duffed LTFC C. They then faced Redhill and Reigate Epee Club, including Chris Howser (2005 British Men's Epee Champion) - we won 45-41 with Joel holding out against Chris Howser charge. The final was a truncated affair against LTFC due to the late hour - which ended up 45-36 based on three DEs all fenced at the same time.


Streatham Fencing Club won the Epee at the ULU (University of London Union) Fencing London Team Open. Streatham beat ULU 44-43 in the semi-finals after a tense match in which the scores were level almost until time ran out – at the end, Streatham’s Joel Collyer abandoned his usual cautious approach and chased ULU’s Graham Miles down the piste, catching him for the winning point. Streatham then went on to comfortably beat London Thames Fencing Club (Barnes) in the final. In the Foil, Streatham enjoyed an easy passage to the final, although it required an assured debut by teenager Selina Hill to turn 15-7 deficit to a 20-15 lead in their opening match to set them on their way. Unfortunately, Salle Gadaski (based in Moorfields) proved too strong for Streatham in the final, despite an epic fight back by Streatham’s Nick Fihosy in the final leg. Nick was compensated the following day when his daughter, Ayesha, won the South East U12 Girls’ Foil to qualify for the British Youth Championships. London Thames won the Sabre event in what was a successful inaugural event event in which 17 team s took part.
