Thomas is the ‘Rising Star’ of Fencing

Thomas is the ‘Rising Star’ of Fencing

 Lower Sixth student and talented fencer Thomas Dickson had a career ‘high’ last month when he secured a Bronze Medal at the GB National Junior (Under 20) Epée Championships in London on 14th February. It was a tough competition and he had to put out the top seed and beat another member of the GB Junior Team (selected for the European and World championships) to get into 3rd position...

He has now represented England twice at U15 level and was a member of the GB Cadet (U17) Squad (2014/15).

On Monday 1st March he was also the recipient of a Sport Newcastle ‘Rising Star’ Award which was presented to him at the Civic Centre.

Congratulations to Thomas on a highly successful few months of fencing!
