Buccaneers Win Yorkshire Team Foil 2012!

Posted on

On Sunday 8th July the Yorkshire Team Foil took place at Penistone Grammar School.  A total of 10 teams competed with 3 teams from Sheffield Buccaneers.  Our first team consisting of Yasin Rosowsky, Mike McKay and Nathan Doherty won against Louth Fencing Club in the final with a score of 45-28.  The second team consisting of Adam Blight, Steve Watson and Alex Wakeman finished 4th and the third team with Abdelrahim Brown, Rauari McKay and Amer Qaiyum came 10th.  It has been good to see Yasin back in action both here and in the club after a few years of not fencing and we say a very positive performance from all our first team members.  Our second team would have hoped to beat Doncaster in the 3rd-4th play of having beat them in the pools but it wasn’t to be.  Our third team, consisting of younger fencers new to senior events gave a very enthusiastic performance with many great moments.   The overall position of teams was –

1st Sheffield Buccaneers 1
2nd Louth Mens
3rd Doncaster FC
4th Sheffield Buccaneers 2
5th (Not) Leeds
6th Louth Ladies
7th Louth Mixed
8th Barnsley Ladies
9th Barnsley Mens
10th Sheffield Buccaneers 3
Yasin Rosowsky
The Louth Team
