Did we ever happen to mention that fencing is important at St. Conleth’s? We were actually in the process of publicising Philip Cripwell’s impressive accomplishment, when even more news about fencing at St. Conleth’s came through on the wire. Apparently, the notorious (in a good ‘Captain Jack’ kind of way) Moriarty-Smyth and Sherlock brothers were at it again last weekend, poking holes in the fences of young fencers up north. It was Round Four of the Northern Ireland Junior Fencing Series and, yes, teh boys came back with their usual bag of booty. In the Under-10 Mixed, Myles Moriarty-Smyth took Gold, while brother James copped the same shine in the Under-14 Boys with Luke Sherlock finishing just outside of medals. Philip better not get soft, sitting on that scholarship. Plenty of competition is on the way!
