Cordeaux Academy’s Year 9 pupil Sam Blair competed in the national Leon Paul Junior Series Foil Fencing competition in Wrexham.

A field of 26 competitors, featuring some of the best young fencers in the country, lined up in the under 13s boys class. 

Sam, representing Louth Fencing Club, finished in an excellent second place to win a richly-deserved silver medal.

The result now places Sam, who has been fencing since the age of nine, in the top 10 under 13s fencers in the country.
