This year’s Veterans 4 Nation match will be held in Ireland on Saturday 6th May near Dublin with all events being held on one day. Due to the increased cost of booking travel and the availability of hotels, the selection date for the Scottish Veterans for this event will be Monday 13th February. Rankings will be based on those at the end of January plus any adjustment for competitions between then and the 13th, e.g. the MOFT.
Final rankings are published below - if you have any questions or if there are any errors please contact us as soon as you notice them.
The selection process to choose the Squad that will represent Scotland at the 2017 Challenge Wratislavia is now underway and we hope to announce the decisions soon.
Should any fencer want to be considered for selection in exceptional circumstances, please complete the ‘FIS Form’ located here link

I am sorry to announce that Roy Clarke has decided to step down as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Scottish Fencing at the end of January 2017.
Scottish Fencing has gone through a significant transformation over recent years particularly in terms of how professional our organisation has become. A key part of this professionalisation has been the creation of the new CEO post. Roy took on this responsibility in 2014 and was formally appointed in 2015.

After service to Scottish Fencing of more years than even he can remember (but at least 16), Paul Neil-MacLachlan has decided it’s time to retire from his position as Scottish Fencing’s Coach Education Manager. Paul played a key role in developing and delivering coach education in Scotland, including the highly successful Hungarian collaboration which trained many of our current senior coaches.
