Alvares Wins in Newcastle


Mark Alvares won the under 17 British ranking event at the weekend at the Newcastle Fencing Centre. 

Mark didn’t drop a fight all day, including his L16 fight against team mate Rory McLellan.  Rory, still only 13, put in a strong performance and can be pleased with his result. Also making it on to the final tableau of 8 was 14 year old Sam Freeman – a career best performance for him. 

But it was Mark who pushed through to he final which he won 15-13 against GB team mate Alex LeMaitre. 

This result will put him in a strong position for the 2017-18 season as Mark has another year to go at cadet level.
