Newham Swords got their season off to a great start when Rachel Shaw took gold in the girls’ under-14 age group at the Southampton National Junior Premier Fencing tournament.

The Lister schoolgirl produced a wonderful display to take the top prize while club-mate and England under-15 international Alice Campbell was seventh.

Aiste Dambrauskaite came fifth in the girls’ under-11s, and English Youth Champion James Page, who took silver in the under-14 Boys event.

Shaw, Campbell and Dambrauskaite will now prepare for the Camden Leon Paul Junior later this month, while Page also prepares for the London under-17 Tournament.
