Evie Bullman was the cream of the fencing crop after picking up a bronze medal at the British Youth Championships.

Bullman, who goes to Queenswood Girls School, was one of a number from the St Albans-based Paul Davis Fencing Academy who took part in the tournament at Sheffield.

She picked up her medal in the U12 Girls Sabre.

Paul Davis said: “Evie has only been fencing since September and proved that hard work and a fighting spirit pays off.”

In total there was a squad of 22 from Team PDFA, who had qualified from the Eastern Region, among the 2,000 fencers from across the UK.
