Senior Regional Championships 2010

Mens Foil: Gavin Rudge, Gianfranco Muresu, Charles Benke
Mens Sabre: Dave Cox, Terry Stanton

Gongs: Silver (Men’s Foil); Plate

Hightlights: In sabre both Dave and Terry gave a good account of themselves, against stiff opposition. In men’s foil both Gavin and Charles fought well in the foil competition with Gavin coming ranking second out of the pools. He had the misfortune to come across his fellow club member Gianfranco in the quarter final, where he narrowly lost in a fierce if cagey bout 15-13 after taking the lead for most of the match. Charles too went out in the quarter finals but rallied to win the later the plate competition. Gianfranco fought his way to the final but he was unable to retain his championship title from 2008 (2009 he was injured with a fractured toe) where he eventually lost to Richard Morris from Team Melia 15-7 in an energetic fight.
