//BYC Success – New Under 18 British Champion – Stephen Brown

Stephen Brown of Friends of Grosvenor Fencing Club is the new Under 18 British Foil Champion!

Forty-seven fencers took part in this event which saw Stephen beat Isaac Mulcahy 15-7 in the first semi-final and John Feaster overcome Alan Lozovik 15-11 in the second.

Mihai Rascu oversaw the gold medal match.  After the opeing period John was leading 9-6.  The second period began with a stunning fight back from Stephen and a failed video appeal from John meant Stephen was able to draw level at 13-13.  Stephen scored again to take the lead for the first time in the match before John levelled at 14-14.  A fantastically sharp attack from Stephen saw him take the title 15-14.

Many congratulations to Stephen on this fantastic result.
