Sutton put a brand new team into the Presidents Cup this year (Claire on Sabre, Jack on Epee and Dan on Foil). They didn’t get a medal, but fenced well in each bout and can’t wait to take part next year (so they say!).
We entered one junior team in the Wenlock Olympics this year and a number of foilists also took part in the senior event.

Oliver Bradley (5 – plate)
Matt McLaughlan (6 – plate)
We didn’t win the cup this year. I can’t recall which position we did end up but here is a nice image of Julie Foster, Dave Cox and Tomas Kazik doing the honours for Sutton.
Sutton sent two teams to the 2015 Presidents Cup. We didn’t manage to win it this year, but out of 13 teams we did come second and equal third which is pretty darn good! And if you are being picky, technically we had more victories than the other third placed team, so let’s say second and third….
Gong: Team Silver: Tomas, Imogen and Dave

We’ve got a good winning record in the Presidents Cup, long may it continue!
This year we came fourth out of ten teams
