Eleven-year-old Luke Mason became the South West foil champion at Millfield and now qualifies for the British Championships.

LUKE Mason, aged 11, competed at Millfield School and became the South West qualifier champion.

This means that in May he can compete in the British Youth Championships held yearly in Sheffield, if he win that, he will be the Under-12 foil champ of the UK.

At Millfield, Luke won every bout, going through two pools and earning top seeding. He then won all his DEs or direct elimination bouts to win, overcoming some tough opposition that made for some great action and exciting viewing and superb displays of skill.

Luke attends Broadoak Mathematics and Commuting College and fences locally at Churchill Fencing Club on Wednesday evenings between 7-9pm.
