British Fencing have also recognised some Scots for their achievements in fencing:

Keith Cook won the Innovation Award for his work in developing plastic fencing awards.
It is great to see Scots recognised for their contributions to fencing. Keith was able to accept his award in person at the British Fencing Championship Dinner earlier this year and is pictured below.
And in the Veteran European Fencing Team Championships congratulations go to Michelle Narey who along with her team mates won gold in the Ladies Sabre event.
