Rome EURO Cadet Circuit

Mr Kent travelled as Chef de Mission for Newham fencer Teagan, and after a long day she made 2nd out of 163... it was the best women's foil result in cadet (U.17) in GB history of fencing. USA had strong contingent and no Italians made L8 which is unheard of.  The tournament was very well run, with Mr Kent knowing many of the organisers and Italian coaches.

Congratulations to Milly for medal this spring in U.12's (still one year to go in this category).
