Welsh Veteran Fencing Team were in action recently with several members of Wrexham Fencing Club among the party.
The Welsh team were competing in the Veterans Four Nations, against England, Scotland and All Irish teams at the event which was held in Belfast.
Jamie Morris, Mark Robertson, Rose Gregory, Wednesday Jones and County member Linda Evans were all representing Wrexham Fencing Club in the Welsh team.
They were selected after beating off other Welsh fencers at a qualifying competition held last November.
Wales were guided by Wrexham head coach Mike Norfolk.
Having celebrated his 70th irthday earlier this month, Mike shows no let-up and is an active asset to Welsh Fencing and Wrexham Fencing Club.
His guidance and help to the Welsh team was appreciated by every member, especially the Wrexham contingent.
This year’s Veterans Four Nations event was the third in the competition’s history.
The Welsh team have continually shown improvements in their results and this year was no exception. All the Wrexham fencers played vital roles in the team’s successes.
Despite finishing in fourth place, the Wales have once more closed the gap between first and fourth place.
Jamie Morris and Mark Robertson were instrumental in the results acheived by the men’s epee team.
Losing narrowly 45-42 against a strong English team, they picked themselves up to beat both Scotland and All Ireland.
Rose Gregory and Wednesday Jones more than played their parts in victory against the English in the women’s epee.
Linda Evans continued to adjust to international fencing and was part of a victorious women’s sabre team.W
