Club Matches

Vs Wimbledon, May 1998

This was a match where the next generation started to threaten the longer established fencers. David Rises of Wimbledon won two fights of three in the foil competition, loosing only to Simon Pearson in a hard-fought bout, while Meg Schofield of Guildford reciprocated with two wins of three in the Épée competition.

The foil was won by Wimbledon, by 6 bouts to 3.
The Épée was won by Guildford, by 5 bouts to 4.

The match secreatary tells me the result is therefore a draw.

GFC vs Reading, 17th March

This was a novice foil match, fenced at home. Unfortunately the visitors won.

GFC Juniors vs. Cranleigh Junior School

This match was fenced away on 28th February. Many thanks to Cranleigh for hosting the event. There were four teams of 3 fencers.

Electric foil: GFC won
Steam foil: result drawn.

Surrey Epée, 1 February 1998

Guildford achieved 2nd place in the Surrey team competition, whic was run as a knockout competition this year owing to a shortage of time. The team beat Wimbledon B and Streatham but then lost to their old rivals Wimbledon A. The team was Simon Pearson, Tim Schofield and Martin Cohen.

Barwell Cup

GFC entered the Barwell Cup for 16th November 1997. This is an annual four-weapon team competition against other clubs in Surrey.

GFC vs Wimbledon, November 1997

Unfortunately Wimbledon won this rather heavily at all the weapons contested: two Junior Foil teams, epée, foil and sabre.

GFC versus Spectrum Fencing Club

This match was held at Guildford Spectrum on 28th October 1997.

Summary: Guildford won by 9 bouts to 7 in the Épée and by 9 bouts to nil in the foil.
