NEWHAM SWORDS won another title recently when Alex Savin became the Essex County Fencing champion.

After winning the under-15 international in Paris earlier this year, this latest triumph completed a fine season for the Newham youngster, who it appears is destined for great things within the sport.

To complement his victory, Swords also saw Amol Rattan finish third, Boris Kabasubabo come fifth and Rajan Rai, in his first senior competition, end in sixth place.

The Swords are now aiming to defend the London Youth Games title they have won for the last two years.
